2021 International Conference of the Consortium for Comparative Research on Regional Integration and Social Cohesion-Social Elevation (RISC-RISE):
Social Partnerships and Regional Integration
Organized by the University of Luxembourg, the Luxembourg Institute of Socio-Economic Research, and the University of Johannesburg’s Department of Politics and International Relations
November 29 – November 30, 2021
The RISC-RISE Consortium calls for papers for its 2021 conference on 29-30 November. The aim of the event is to examine how transnational social partnerships are established in order to address problems or promote sustainability across national borders within a region or between different regions. For example, "Luxembourg’s Greater Region" assembles various associations and public institutions to address questions related to mobility, cross-border labor markets, environmental issues, etc. This call for papers engages transnational partnerships led by citizens, civil society, unions, businesses, or public institutions aimed at cooperative problem solving (i.e. management of shared natural resources, climate change mitigation, crime, etc.), promotion of sustainability or improvement of quality of democracy
Conference format: Health restrictions permitting, the conference will be held in hybrid form with both in- person and remote presentations. The conference will include panels organized by the RISC-RISE consortium’s working groups (4 speakers per panel) and keynote speakers.
Paper proposals: The deadline for the submission of paper proposals is planned for 20 May 2021. All proposals, including 1) Proposed paper title, 2) Author name(s) and contact information, 3) Author affiliation(s) and position(s), 3) A 100-200 word abstract and 4) The name of the panel for which the paper is being proposed, should be submitted by email to: email@example.com. Incomplete proposals will not be considered. All papers presented at the conference can be submitted for publication in the RISC-RISE Consortium’s peer-reviewed journal Regions & Cohesion (Berghahn Journals).
