American Politics Group of the Political Studies Association (PSA)

American Politics Group Annual Meeting

In 1974 a small group of US politics colleagues, active members both of the Political Studies Association and of the British Association for American Studies, agreed that American Politics scholars in the UK had so much to discuss that they needed to carve out some dedicated space. Their invention, the American Politics Group, held its first conference at Keele University in January 1975, with about 20 participants and Watergate Special Prosecutor Archibald Cox gave the keynote address.
The 2024 conference is thus the group's 50th, and we are delighted it will held in London at Queen Mary University on Mile End Road in the East End. The American Politics Group (APG) of the Political Studies Association (PSA) remains the premier organisation for the study of US politics beyond America’s shores. The group is based in the UK, with a strong representation of European scholars, as well as scholars from the US and further afield.
The APG invites proposals on any aspect of US politics. Papers examining contemporary US political institution or processes, US foreign policy, or US political history are all welcome.
Previous conferences have had a strong postgraduate presence, and we especially encourage early career scholars to present their work.

Urban Affairs Association

International Conference on Urban Affairs

Cities on the Edge: Promoting Equity and Resiliency through Research, Activism, Planning, and Policy
Cities are home to more than 55% of the world’s population and generate 80% of global GDP. Their economic power and influence are counterbalanced by a growing number of social, political, and environmental challenges that threaten to undermine societies and habitats. Current conditions within cities, as well as their future capacity to become equitable and resilient, are shaped by a complex set of dynamics. Policies and politics operating at the global, regional and local levels produce conflicts, polarization, dislocation, economic instability, and climate change. As the world’s cities begin an assumed exit from the recent global pandemic, a singular question emerges: how can cities on the brink of irreversible change develop equitable policy options that will allow for future sustainability and resilience?
The dynamics influencing current conditions in cities, as well as their ability to become equitable and resilient in the future, are complex, and call for a multidisciplinary perspective from urban affairs scholars and practitioners. This conference welcomes researchers, planners, policymakers, advocates, and community leaders to share insights and identify strategies for creating equitable options that ensure sustainable choices. Among the wide range of topics relevant to cities, a set of subthemes are of particular interest.

Proposal Deadline: October 1, 2023

International Business Review

How Multinational Companies Are Adjusting their Strategies and Operations in Response to a Turbulent IB Environment

The past few years have witnessed significant rises in both the complexity and the risks of international business stemming from (a) more assertive nationalism, protectionism and screening or scrutiny on foreign firms, with government policies increasingly skewed in favor of the host nation; (b) the realization that the extreme optimization of global value chains (GVC) has gone too far and more resilient redesigns of GVCs are called for; (c) globalized or transborder mandates and pressures increasing on multinational enterprises (MNEs), on issues ranging from climate change, environmental, social and governance (ESG), sustainable development goals (SDG), and international tax avoidance; and (d) macroeconomic changes or volatility occurring in interest rates, commodity prices and exchange rates.
