Lecture “Pluralism in Economics”
Every fall term, we organize the lecture “Pluralism in Economics” in co-operation with the department of economics. This semester, the lecture takes place from 4:15 p.m. to 6 p.m. every Tuesday.
There is a movie night every month, where we watch a movie related to economics and discuss it thereafter.
Every month, we hold a discussion circle where we read a short text about pluralism in economics in a newspaper or on an op-ed site. We will discuss the content of the text thereafter.

Conference “Does Economics have to change after Covid-19? A Discussion with pluralistic perspectives
The Covid-19 health crisis is the second global economic crisis in just over a decade. The 2008 economic crisis led to criticism of mainstream economics: Student groups and a number of researchers considered research and teaching to lack pluralism of theories, methods, and openness towards other social sciences. But the 2008 crisis has also re-shaped economics research.
In the wake of the Covid-19 crisis, the goal of this conference is to present and discuss current research on the implications of the crisis for inequalities, trade, climate change and development by economists with diverse backgrounds. It should enable a discussion between mainstream and non-mainstream economists. A final panel will discuss the goal of economics, whether it is sufficiently diverse, and what could be done to improve teaching and research.
