International Economic History and Political Economy Conference

Economic Development Paths in the Carpathian Basin

6th and 7th June 2019

Oradea, Romania





Economic development is constantly changing in space and time, sometimes moving upward and sometimes declining. Whatever the interpretations of these processes are, they could highlight some viewpoints that might explain the events of today's world. This conference will capture such a perspective and try to present old and new solutions, highlight old and new processes from a historical and economic point of view and bring them to the professional audience. Old and new phenomena are seen in their history and in their effects. The specialty of our conference is, that themes crossing the ages will be presented from a multidisciplinary perspective.


The Partium Christian University, Corvinus University of Budapest and the Babeș-Bolyai Univeristy invite an international scientific audience to submit paper proposals in the fields of Economic History, Economic Policy, Political Economy, Comparative Economics and any other field referring to the theme of the conference. The following topics are expected to be discussed:

  • Economic History of Integrations in the Carpathia Basin
  • Political Economy of European integration
  • Economic Development Paths
  • Economic and Social Networks Developments
  • Economic, Social and Political Drivers of Development
