Crisis as Opportunity: State, Markets and Communities in Turbulent Times - International Conference

01.11.2010
A conference of the International Political Science Association - Research Committee: Structure & Organization of Government (SOG) organized by the Centre for Social Investment (CSI) and the Hertie School of Governance.

The aftermath of the financial crisis has triggered a debate on the future of governance and the relation between states, markets and civil societies, both across major OECD countries and beyond.

While the state is called back in forcefully, its capacity to act as a regulator of globalised markets and as a provider of public services is questioned in the light of financial austerity following industry bail]outs, demographic etime]bombs' and environmental vulnerability.

This is therefore the ideal time to re]consider the estate of the state' - both in terms of its internal architecture as well as its relationship to and division of labor with the rest of society. The conference is presented into five panels:

Panel I: Framing, managing and coping with the financial crisis
Panel II: Post-crisis regulatory regimes in health care and food safety
Roundtable: Governance after the Crisis
Panel III: Pre- and post-crisis public administration reforms
Panel IV: Governance and Civil Society
Panel V: Bureaucracy and Good Governance Performance
All panels will be held in the English language.

Im Focus: Carbon Nanotubes Turn Electrical Current into Light-emitting Quasi-particles

Strong light-matter coupling in these semiconducting tubes may hold the key to electrically pumped lasers

Light-matter quasi-particles can be generated electrically in semiconducting carbon nanotubes. Material scientists and physicists from Heidelberg University...

Im Focus: Flexible proximity sensor creates smart surfaces

Fraunhofer IPA has developed a proximity sensor made from silicone and carbon nanotubes (CNT) which detects objects and determines their position. The materials and printing process used mean that the sensor is extremely flexible, economical and can be used for large surfaces. Industry and research partners can use and further develop this innovation straight away.

At first glance, the proximity sensor appears to be nothing special: a thin, elastic layer of silicone onto which black square surfaces are printed, but these...

Im Focus: 3-D scanning with water

3-D shape acquisition using water displacement as the shape sensor for the reconstruction of complex objects

A global team of computer scientists and engineers have developed an innovative technique that more completely reconstructs challenging 3D objects. An ancient...

Im Focus: Manipulating Electron Spins Without Loss of Information

Physicists have developed a new technique that uses electrical voltages to control the electron spin on a chip. The newly-developed method provides protection from spin decay, meaning that the contained information can be maintained and transmitted over comparatively large distances, as has been demonstrated by a team from the University of Basel’s Department of Physics and the Swiss Nanoscience Institute. The results have been published in Physical Review X.

For several years, researchers have been trying to use the spin of an electron to store and transmit information. The spin of each electron is always coupled...

Im Focus: The proton precisely weighted

What is the mass of a proton? Scientists from Germany and Japan successfully did an important step towards the most exact knowledge of this fundamental constant. By means of precision measurements on a single proton, they could improve the precision by a factor of three and also correct the existing value.

To determine the mass of a single proton still more accurate – a group of physicists led by Klaus Blaum and Sven Sturm of the Max Planck Institute for Nuclear...
