The Europe and the World Centre at the University of Liverpool, is bringing together scholars of Middle East studies and international political economy for a one day workshop which will take place at the University of Liverpool on 5 April 2019.

The workshop builds on recent efforts to apply alternative IPE perspectives to the Middle Eastern state. What unites these efforts is their insistence that states are co-constituted between East and West, between inside and outside. They include contrapuntal histories of oil or water, uneven and combined development, and Gramscian “passive revolution”. Another strand of literature has looked at “new state spaces” of neoliberal urbanism.

The workshop participants will build on these efforts to provide innovative perspectives on Middle Eastern states. The aim is not only to “integrate” Middle Eastern case studies into IPE, but to contribute to debates about state-formation within the discipline.

The workshop is convened by Dr Hannes Baumann (University of Liverpool) and Dr Roberto Roccu (King’s College London). The event is invitation only. If you are interested to attend, please e-mail: mailto:hannes.baumann@liverpool.ac.uk
