This workshop is the third in a series of four events organised as part of the project ‘Diverging Capitalisms? Britain, the City of London and Europe’, which is a joint venture between FEPS (Foundation for European Progressive Studies, Brussels), Policy Network, and SPERI (Sheffield Political Economy Research Institute, University of Sheffield). The aim of the project is to consider the changing nature of the British economy, its place within the European economic space and the consequences of a possible ‘Brexit’. The work undertaken will feed into a number of policy briefs, and in the publication of an edited book with Palgrave.

After two workshops focusing on the changing nature of the City of London and the UK-EU relationship in the field of economic governance, the purpose of this third workshop is to discuss the consequences of the global financial crisis, the Eurozone crisis and ‘Brexit’ upon the institutional foundations shaping national growth models, competitiveness, and the social and regional inequalities of economic performance in economies across Europe. This workshop is set to explore the consequences of these crises for intra-national and international inequality, regulation, investment, social welfare, and Europe’s low growth and high debt economies in the UK and across Europe. Two sessions will focus on the presentations given by Prof. Andrew Gamble and Dr. Scott Lavery, and thereafter a roundtable will be invited to contemplate the evolving capitalisms of Europe and the question of whether they are converging or diverging in the wake of the aforementioned crises.
