On behalf of the organizing committee, we welcome you to join us at FsCongress 2021 (6th FsCongress) with the theme “Economic, Social and Political Impacts of COVID-19 Pandemic” in virtual mode during May 7-8, 2021.
The Covid-19 pandemic emerged in Wuhan, China in December of 2019 and is still ongoing globally. The outbreak has direct negative effects on the economic, social and political life. One of the main aims of the congress is to reveal and discuss these negative externalities. Furthermore, it is also another purpose to produce short and long run policy recommendations.
As it is known, there was a global crisis before the pandemic. With the epidemic, the effects of the crisis on the goods, services and labor markets have been felt more. The proliferation of bankruptcies and layoffs have become the most important economic and social problem and governments, especially in developing countries, could not produce the necessary policies to solve these problems. Unemployment was a significant problem before the outbreak and after the outbreak it increases and became a major problem. It is possible to see the problems experienced in terms of employment not only economically, but also to say that this causes great problems in the social plan. In order to cope with these problems, it is necessary to feed from different academic branches with a holistic perspective. In this context, the theoretical, empirical and political studies of academicians from the fields of economics, sociology, politics, finance and management will be discussed in depth. The policy implications from the congress are expected to lead state policies and academic studies after the crisis.
The conference attempts to provide a premium forum for researchers and academicians in social sciences about these issues. FsCongress 2021 aims to bring together leading academic scientists, researchers and research scholars to exchange and share their experiences and research results on all aspects of FsCongress. Discussions during the plenary sessions and presentations will effectively make substantive knowledge and idea exchange for participants. We believe that FsCongress provides an excellent opportunity to meet experts in different fields of social sciences. Prospective authors are kindly encouraged to contribute to the conference through submissions of their research abstracts and papers. We are looking forward to meeting you at our congress.
**Presentations at the congress can be both English and Turkish.
