Call for Papers
Research Network Q “Asian Capitalisms”
SASE 2019 Annual Conference, New School of Social Research, New York City, U.S.A.

The Call for Papers for Research Network Q “Asian Capitalisms”, included in the SASE 2019 Annual Conference to be held in New York City, U.S.A., June 27-29, has opened.

SASE is an international, interdisciplinary organization with members in over 50 countries on five continents. The academic disciplines represented in SASE include economics, sociology, political science, organization studies, management, accounting, psychology, law, history, and philosophy (

Network Q promotes theory and research on the diversity of socio-economic systems and capitalist development in Asia. New approaches to the study of Asia are needed to better understand how different systems and their socio-economic institutions such as labor markets, capital markets or product markets and outcomes (e.g. comparative advantages, innovation, and cooperation) are related. The network promotes studies that examine these relationships as well as how processes of institutional change affect them. The network contributes to an interdisciplinary perspective on trajectories of development within Asia, and their consequences for socio-economic development.

We welcome a wide range of theoretical perspectives (e.g. political economy, economic sociology, management studies, industrial relations, innovation studies and innovation management, neo-institutionalism, and comparative institutional analysis). Topics of particular interest are: state and capitalism; systems of innovation; production networks and value chains; science, innovation, and technology policies; welfare states; innovation and specialization; entrepreneurship; knowledge-based economies; processes and politics of institutional change; varieties of capitalism, internationalization and regional integration; and emerging industries and technologies such as NEV, digital platforms, AI, and robotics.

Our research network is looking for proposals for single paper submissions, and panels and network conferences (sequences of 2 or 3 panels). Submissions should be done through the SASE website. Deadline for applications is January 14, 2019 for abstracts, and June 1, 2019 for full papers. Once logged into, simply click on the green “Membership and Registration” button in the top right-hand corner of the SASE website to begin the submission process. Note that SASE seeks to promote gender equality. We thus strongly encourage you to take gender balance into account in panel proposals.

A call for travel grants and the award for best paper, both funded by Fondation France-Japon de l’EHESS (, will be available on the SASE website.
