The Centenary Conference on the Keynes’s Economic Consequences of the Peace
Sep 9–10, 2019
King’s College, Cambridge

Cambridge-INET is proud to announce a major conference on Keynes’s 1919 book.

Cambridge-INET is proud to announce a major conference on Keynes’s 1919 book. The book is celebrated as a brilliant piece of advocacy by one of the 20th century’s pre-eminent economists. But it is also an accurate prophecy of the con- sequences of a “Carthaginian peace,” as well as a plea for the type of global economic cooperation that later informed key aspects of reconstruction after World War II – including the Bretton Woods institutions (which Keynes helped to design) and the Marshall Plan. With its description of resurgent nationalism in Europe and the breakdown of pre-WWI international economic integration, the book has great resonance today, given growing nationalism, the fraying of traditional alliances, and attacks on the multilateral institutions that have supported economic and financial globalization.

Call for Papers
Papers are solicited across a range of disciplines – including economics, history, political science, and international relations – with the unifying theme being Keynes’s classic polemic and how we view it today in the light of both the past century’s developments and current challenges.

Scientific and Organising Committees
The conference will include an academic discussion of written contributions as well as a public event. The Scientific Committee of the conference consists of Patricia Clavin (Oxford), Giancarlo Corsetti (Cambridge), Maurice Obstfeld (Berkeley), and Adam Tooze (Columbia). The Organizing Committee consists of Gareth Austin, Giancarlo Corsetti and David Howarth (Cambridge), Misa Tanaka (Bank of England), Eugenio Gaiotti (Banca d’Italia), and Jesper Linde (Sveriges Riksbank).
