Transdisciplinarity

 

Ongoing specialization and fragmentation in research thwart scientific cooperation within economic science and even more so within economics and other disciplines. Transdisciplinarity refers to research that bridges the conventional dividing lines. We are looking forward to receiving research papers of this type. Contributions on how to structure and organize academic education in multi- or interdisciplinary studies or settings, are also welcome. Discussions on the challenges and bottlenecks, successes and failures in such domains as management science, environmental sciences, regional science, sciences of the state (Staatswissenschaften) may open new vistas.

Participants will present their accepted papers and have them discussed in group sessions or (perhaps) plenary sessions. Proposals for full sessions with presentation of papers or well prepared panel discussions are also of interest to us.

Markets, Money and Democracy

The world economy and its constituent political entities see themselves confronted with a host of problems, of which climate change is perhaps the most extensively discussed. But if we want to preserve or build up a decent and well-functioning society, other areas deserve serious discussion as well. We invite scholars to contribute to an exchange of ideas on relevant subjects, such as:

The future of employment

Democracy and the rule of law

The open society

Alternative monetary systems

Ethics and economics
