CfP: Economic Organizations, Uncertainty, and Risk: Sociological Analyses of Economic Organizations in Times of Crises

The past 15 years represent an era of capitalism in crises. Phenomena like the global financial crisis (2007-2009), followed by the European sovereign debt crisis in 2010, major political occurrences such as the Brexit referendum (2016), or Covid-19 have challenged economic and political reality that likewise engendered critics towards it. Furthermore, the danger of an ecological collapse is omnipresent. And with respect to the ongoing war in Ukraine it is currently impossible to foresee what humanitarian and social catastrophe is looming.

We are looking for papers dealing with different coping modes of organizations such as conventions, translation processes or how techniques of quantification might have an impact on organizational behavior in risk management.

Submission of abstracts: 31 October 2022
