Call for Papers

Background

The economic environment has been changing internationally for the last two decades. There has been quantitative and qualitative shift in trade and business opportunities across nations of the world. Furthermore, with advent of liberalization, structural reform, and innovations in information technology, there is a significant increase in the international mobility of people, capital, knowledge, technology and materials. At the same time, the volatility in socio-economic performance of economies has increased.

This volatility has been exacerbated by the recent economic crisis. With it, many developing countries are more dramatically impacted on than many developed countries. This implies that concrete policy agenda has to be called for by the international organizations and governments to manage the crisis so as to limit the extent of socio-economic damage the crisis will have. In many developing countries, social implications of the crisis carry long-run implications for economic growth.

In view of this recent state of affairs, a three day Conference has been organized from September 20th 2009 to September 22nd 2009 on the theme: “CHANGING ECONOMIC ENVIRONMENT AND PERFORMANCE OF THE NATIONS: CANADA AND INDIA” by the Department of Business Economics, Faculty of Commerce, The Maharaja Sayajirao University of Baroda, Vadodara. In perseverance with evaluating the impact of the changing economic environment and its implications on the overall human welfare, the Conference will seek to focus specially on experiences of Canada and India. In doing so the idea is to bring together leading researchers from academic institutions and government to develop better understanding of the crisis and its socio-economic implications.
