2nd Vienna Conference on Pluralism in Economics 2019
The objective of this conference is twofold. First, it shall contribute to an understanding of contemporary challenges from a broader social science perspective. Second, it aims at highlighting various schools of economic thought, their core concepts and approaches, and how they can contribute to a better understanding of our complex reality. We explicitly encourage contributions from all social sciences, including economics, as well as inter- and transdisciplinary approaches. The following topics will be at the core of the conference: - Addressing contemporary socio-economic challenges from a pluralist as well as trans- and interdisciplinary perspective, - Philosophy of science & methodology in economics and other social sciences, - Teaching economics and related disciplines in a pluralist understanding. Specific contributions may be from the topics of e.g. climate change, globalization, well-being and development, power, the rise of the populist vote, the welfare state, distribution and inequality, labor, financial markets, digitalization and others. All theoretical assumptions should be explicitly reflected upon in the submissions. Advanced students are highly encouraged to participate.
