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

Our brains house extremely complex neuronal circuits, whose detailed structures are still largely unknown. This is especially true for the so-called cerebral cortex of mammals, where among other things vision, thoughts or spatial orientation are being computed. Here the rules by which nerve cells are connected to each other are only partly understood. A team of scientists around Moritz Helmstaedter at the Frankfiurt Max Planck Institute for Brain Research and Helene Schmidt (Humboldt University in Berlin) have now discovered a surprisingly precise nerve cell connectivity pattern in the part of the cerebral cortex that is responsible for orienting the individual animal or human in space.
The researchers report online in Nature (Schmidt et al., 2017. Axonal synapse sorting in medial entorhinal cortex, DOI: 10.1038/nature24005) that synapses in...
New technique promises tunable laser devices
Whispering gallery mode (WGM) resonators are used to make tiny micro-lasers, sensors, switches, routers and other devices. These tiny structures rely on a...
Using ultrafast flashes of laser and x-ray radiation, scientists at the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics (Garching, Germany) took snapshots of the briefest electron motion inside a solid material to date. The electron motion lasted only 750 billionths of the billionth of a second before it fainted, setting a new record of human capability to capture ultrafast processes inside solids!
When x-rays shine onto solid materials or large molecules, an electron is pushed away from its original place near the nucleus of the atom, leaving a hole...
For the first time, physicists have successfully imaged spiral magnetic ordering in a multiferroic material. These materials are considered highly promising candidates for future data storage media. The researchers were able to prove their findings using unique quantum sensors that were developed at Basel University and that can analyze electromagnetic fields on the nanometer scale. The results – obtained by scientists from the University of Basel’s Department of Physics, the Swiss Nanoscience Institute, the University of Montpellier and several laboratories from University Paris-Saclay – were recently published in the journal Nature.
Multiferroics are materials that simultaneously react to electric and magnetic fields. These two properties are rarely found together, and their combined...
