Debates on contemporary policy challenges

The IKPS is promoting open and public debates with the objective of putting the economy in its place again, as a caring and supportive activity in a flourishing social, cultural and ecological civilization. Topics of the debates will cover burning issues, ranging from Brexit, elections in the US, and Bolsonaro’s Brazil to the Green New Deal and Southern Europe ten years after the beginning of its deep crisis. Each debate will be introduced by a short introductory text. We will personally invite contributors, but also call for contributions from the Polanyi community in our monthly newsletters

 The debates are based on Polanyi’s thought patterns and his theories. Thus, Polanyi’s work can once again become more tangible for the challenges of our present and his theoretical work can live on and be applied in future generations.
