at a conference on Growth and Crises: Social Structure of Accumulation Theory and Analysis, to be held at the National University of Ireland, in Galway, Ireland , November 2 ‑ 4, 2006.

You can participate in this conference either through presenting a paper or serving as a discussant on a panel.

Sessions are planned on the following topics, all in relation to the SSA theory or related theories:

! The theory of SSAs
! Individual country studies
! Regional analysis
! International political economy
! Environmental issues
! Individual institutions, including finance, labour and criminal justice
! Comparative studies of different countries
! Analysis of growth and crisis
! Globalization, neoliberalism, and the SSA theory

In addition, we hope to have a session or two devoted to differing but related perspectives. We will also be discussing continuing communication and future events. Papers presented at this conference can be considered for inclusion, along with others, in a follow-up volume to our 1994 edited book Social Structures of Accumulation: The Political Economy of Growth and Crisis.

We are inviting individuals to participate in this conference on the basis of past work or current interest in the SSA framework or related schools of thought. We expect to raise enough financial support to cover conference fees for those invited. Attendees will have to cover the costs of transportation, accommodation and probably meals. If there is someone you think should be invited please contact us.

We are including a registration form.
Please send the form and abstract by September 8 to Terry McDonough at
