ORGANISED BY THE KONRAD-ADENAUER-FOUNDATION IN COOPERATION- WITH THE EUROPEAN BUSINESS CIRCLE AND THE UNIVERSITY OF OXFORD
While the success of the Social Market Economy as Germany’s distinguished ‘Third Way’ of regulatory policy between centralist socialism and unbridled capi- talism has received general praise, some confusion remains about the forma- tion, definition, implementation and potential of the economic and socio-political concept. In particular in English academic research and writing, the Social Mar- ket Economy and its constitutive forces behind the political and economic re- construction of post-war Germany have received considerably little attention. Due to this year’s 60th anniversary of the German constitution, which built the framework for the post-war economic model, it is the intention of this interna- tional bilingual conference to recall and communicate the historical origins and basic principals of the Social Market Economy. Furthermore, the transforma- tions of the concept over time shall be both traced back and potential future developments be presented to the audience and readership respectively. More- over, the role and potential of the Social Market Economy in times of an in- creasing European Union and an intensifying global economic, political and so- cietal crisis shall be examined.
The conference will be held in German and English with translation available.
(Post)Doctoral students and faculty are invited to submit abstracts and papers of original research for consideration and publication. These contributions shall relate to one of the following thematic areas of the conference:
- Formation and Implementation of the Social Market Economy
- Definition and Transformation of the Social Market Economy
- Potential and Perspectives of the Social Market Economy in the context of Europeanisation and Globalisation
