5th ITEPE Conference

The ‘Turn to Governance’ and its Consequences

The Recalibration of Statehood in Europe from the 1970s until Today

20-21 October 2016

Department of Business and Politics, Copenhagen Business School

Kilen, Kilevej 14, 2000 Frederiksberg. Room Ks.71

  Background: From the 1970s to the first decade of the new millennium European nation states underwent profound structural changes in the wake of what might be described as the ‘turn to governance’ or the shift from ‘government to governance’. In the context of the end of the cold war, increased globalisation and Europeanisation as well as profound technological developments, a number of core pillars of society in relation to the exercise of state-based public power and its interactions with the rest of society were seemingly altered. On this background, the conference has a three-fold aim: Firstly, to historically re-examine the reasons for the emergence and driving forces of the ‘turn to governance’. Secondly, to re-evaluate the actual impact on European states and European societies more generally of the ‘turn to governance’. Thirdly, to critically discuss the ‘governance paradigm’ and present reflections on possible scientific counter-paradigms and potential reform strategies in relation to the functioning of public institutions and public/private relations in a post-governance world. Organisers: Poul F. Kjaer, Department of Business and Politics, Copenhagen Business School and Tim Holst Celik, Department of Business and Politics, Copenhagen Business School. Sponsor: The European Research Council within the framework of the project ‘Institutional Transformation in European Political Economy – A Socio-Legal Approach’ (ITEPE) hosted by the Department of Business and Politics, Copenhagen Business School and is the 5th conference held within the ITEPE conference series (www.itepe.eu). Registration: Mette Grue Nielsen: mgn.dbp@cbs.dk before Friday 14th October 2015 Conference program and paper abstracts can be found here:
