Call for Papers: Law and Institutional Economics of Revolutions – Cairo, Egypt 

In advance of its September 29-30, 2013, conference, the Economic Research Forum invites papers that address the following:

Poverty and widening social disparity cannot only cause revolutions; they may also be the outcome of a revolution. The Arab spring has caused regime change in a number of countries that are making very different experiences with their transition. All of the concerned societies are confronted with fundamental challenges. Preserving—but also improving—the rule of law is one of them. It is the purpose of this workshop to make contributions on how transition periods after revolutions can be made a success. In addition, it explores why such revolutions are triggered in the first place.

Papers that deal with concrete aspects of revolutions in the Middle East are highly welcomed. Particular attention will be paid both to the academic quality but also the real world relevance of the proposals. A limited number of scholarships to cover travel as well as accommodation costs are available.

The conference will be held in English.

Deadline: Please submit either an extended abstract of around five pages or your complete paper until May 15th, 2013. Submissions should be sent to stefan.voigt[@] im
