*Section title: Mapping Alternative Routes out of Capitalism *Different
forms of struggle in contemporary capitalism - including anti-austerity
movements, occupations, direct action, workplace organising, the continued
role of trade unions, recent attempts to re-engage with electoral politics
(Syriza, Podemos, Jeremy Corbyn) and alternatives to capitalism within the
present - cooperatives, autonomous education projects, housing initiatives.
See below a call for panels and papers for a section in the European
International Studies Association conference, Izmir, Turkey, 7-10 September

The section seeks panels and papers on alternatives to capitalism, and how
we might achieve them, both within the capitalist present and on the route
to a post-capitalist society.

The deadline for proposals is 8 January 2016 and must be done online
through the EISA conference tool website -

submitting proposals: *

*Section title: Mapping Alternative Routes out of Capitalism *
Section abstract: The critical study of global capitalism and the hegemony
of neoliberalism are both central to the study of international relations
and international political economy. International studies has focused
less, however, on questioning how (if at all) we might go beyond
capitalism. This is despite global capitalism remaining dangerously
unstable, not least because the global economic crisis that began in 2008
continues to linger without any obvious resolution to it. The aim of this
section, therefore, is to bring together those with an interest in the rise
of alternatives at varied positions along the ideological spectrum;
mapping, studying, theorising, highlighting, judging and assessing
practices which form contemporary alternatives to, and problems for, global
capitalism. This includes pathways in local, regional and global contexts.
In particular, we note two emerging types of response, each of which expose
the ever-present possibility and presence of sometimes surprising and
contradictory routes outside of capitalism, as well as raising the question
of technology in contemporary social change. On the one hand, we see
various modified projects seeking alternative routes to social justice and
rights: futurist, anti-proprietary or gift culture movements, survivalism,
cooperatives, DIY culture, permaculture, experimentation with cybernetics
and post-humanist ideals, as well as revived institutional interests in
wellbeing. On the other hand, we see the explicit contestation of
capitalism through varyingly autonomous forms of struggle: Occupy, the
indignados, the Greek grassroots projects, Rojava, and, then, the electoral
manifestation of some of these trends within Syriza, Podemos, Barcelona en
Comú, and Jeremy Corbyn.

Section convenors: David Bailey (d.j.bailey at bham.ac.uk) and Phoebe Moore (
