Associação Portuguesa de História Económica e Social
· Perspectivas para o Congresso Mundial de História Económica de Buenos Aires (22-26 de Julho de 2002)
A realização em Aveiro do XXII Encontro da Associação Portuguesa de História Económica e Social (APHES) foi decidida em Assembleia Geral que teve lugar em Braga, na Universidade do Minho, a 17 de Novembro de 2001.
A Comissão Organizadora é constituída por:
Joaquim da Costa Leite, Presidente
Manuel Ferreira Rodrigues, Vogal
António Ferreira Gomes, Vogal
A Comissão Organizadora tem assegurado o apoio institucional do Departamento de Economia, Gestão e Engenharia Industrial (DEGEI) da Universidade de Aveiro. Conta ainda obter apoio da Câmara Municipal de Aveiro, bem como de empresas e instituições regionais e nacionais.
O XXII Encontro tem como tema geral “Empresas e Instituições em Perspectiva Histórica”.
No entanto, de acordo com a prática de anteriores encontros, aceitam-se comunicações sobre outros temas de história económica e social.
A Comissão Organizadora gostaria de fazer notar que o tema geral não se circunscreve à realidade portuguesa, acolhendo com o maior interesse comunicações sobre outros países, incentivando uma análise comparada.
Vale a pena sublinhar ainda que a história económica e social incorpora o estudo das décadas mais recentes, que na riqueza das mudanças empresarias e institucionais propicia importantes temas de reflexão e debate, abertos à participação de investigadores de diferentes origens e formações.

Kromme Nieuwegracht 66, 3512 HL Utrecht -The Netherlands
To all delegates to the General Assembly of the
International Economic History Association
Below you find the agenda of the General Assembly of the International Economic History Association. At the XIIIth Economic History Congress in Buenos Aires the General Assembly of the IEHA will meet on Thursday 25th of July, between 18.00 and 21.00 hour. The meeting will take place in the auditorium.
1. Opening by President

7. Report of the President on the Organization of the 2002 Congress
8. Report of the Secretary-General
9. Minutes of the Meeting of the General Assembly 1998
I would like to add a number of points related to the agenda. First of all, the meeting starts with the report of the treasurer and the applications for membership because these may affect the number of delegates with a right to vote at the General Assembly (see also the attached report of the treasurer). The next item on the agenda is the proposal for new statutes, because we would like to conduct the rest of the agenda under the new rules. However, if the new statutes are not approved by the General Assembly, we can continue with the agenda as none of the proposals to be discussed are inconsistent with the old statutes.
Ad 3. Three associations have applied for membership: the Chinese Economic History Society, the Indian Economic and Social History Association, and the Economic and Social History Foundation of Turkey (their applications are enclosed). The Executive Committee recommends that all three associations will be accepted as members of the IEHA. I have more detailed information about these organizations available for those delegates who wish to know more.
Ad 4. The proposal for new statutes that resulted from the recommendations of the Reform Commission and the discussions by the Executive Committee is enclosed. For your convenience the proposal includes the text of the old statutes. Besides, a short report on the work of the Reform Commission by Richard Sutch is enclosed. A French translation of the proposed new statutes will be available at the General Assembly.The secretary-general has received two sets of amendments to the new statutes, one by the Economic History Society, and one by the Association Française des Historiens Economistes - both are enclosed. At the General Assembly the Executive Committee will present its view on the suggested amendments. A two-third majority is needed for changes in the statutes.
Ad 5. According to the new statutes (and the rules suggested by the Reform Commission) the Executive Committee has organized an open procedure for the election of new members of the Executive Committee. The following members (elected in 1998) wish to stand for a second term:
- Osamu Saito, Hitotsubashi University (Japan)

- Vice-president: Riitta Hjerppe (see ad 5)
- President: Richard Sutch
Please note that the Economic History Society and the Cliometric Society have reinstated Jeff Williamson as a nominee for the presidency. This means that there are two candidates for the presidency, and that the General Assembly has to make a decision. Curriculi vitae of all nominees for membership of the Executive Committee and the two candidates for the Presidency are enclosed.
Ad 6. The Executive Committee has organized an open bidding procedure for selecting the venue of the 2006 Congress. Three cities/national associations have participated in it: Strasbourg, Sydney, and Helsinki. At its meeting in 2001 the Executive Committee decided to select Helsinki. Prof. Riitta Hjerppe will be the organizer of the Congress, who (under the new statutes) will also be the vice-president for the 2002-2006 term.
Ad 7. The relevant documents will be handed out at the General Assembly.
Ad 8. The report of the Secretary General is enclosed.
If you have any questions relating to the agenda or the documents enclosed in this letter, please let me know via email: firstname.lastname@example.org. Meanwhile, I am looking forward to meeting you in Buenos Aires.
