Conference: The New International Economic Order. Lessons and Legacies 50 Years Later


May 10-11, 2024. Ca’ Foscari University of Venice, Italy

Call for Papers


To generate an international historiographical and political conversation on the New International Economic Order’s history and afterlives, Ca’ Foscari University of Venice, El Colegio de México, the History and Political Economy Project, Temple University and University College London, with the collaboration of the Berggruen Institute will convene a two day conference in Venice in May 2024. We encourage scholars to submit paper abstracts. We are particularly interested in projects drawing on original research from former Third World’s countries’ archives that address the historical but also the contemporary relevance of these ideas, on subjects such as (but not limited to):


  • The potentials and pitfalls of South-South cooperation
  • Multilateral Organizations and the NIEO
  • Counter hegemonic diplomatic strategies of Third World nations
  • Trade, finance and the NIEO’s governance of capitalism
  • The NIEO’s implications for natural resources and extractivism
  • Cultural diplomacy in the NIEO
  • The history of political thought around the NIEO
  • The reception of and reaction to the NIEO in the Global North
  • The afterlives, legacies, and current relevance of the NIEO’s proposals


To apply, please send an abstract of no more than 200/250 words and a short bio to the conference’s official email account:, by April 30, 2023. Submissions will be reviewed by the conference committee and successful applicants will be notified by July 2023. Full papers are due by March 30, 2024. Best papers will be considered for publication in a journal (still to be decided) special issue. Funding will be available to cover at least some travel and accommodation expenses.


Organizing Committee: Vanni Pettinà, Ana Sofía Rodríguez Everaert, Christy Thornton, Artemy Kalinovsky, Alessandro Iandolo, Duccio Basosi, Giuliano Garavini and Nils Gilman.
