Colleagues are very welcome at the following events hosted by CHESS and K4U (ERC project) this academic year
DEMOCRASCI – The Value-Free Ideal in Economics Workshop
This is a joint workshop between two projects: Democracy in Science (DEMOCRASCI) and ‘The Value-Free Ideal in Economics’.
Organised by Julian Reiss (CHESS) and Stéphanie Ruphy (University of Grenoble)
This is a joint workshop between the BA-funded project ‘The Value-Free Ideal in Economics’ (CHESS/Durham) and the ANR-funded DEMOCRASCI (Grenoble). The general aim of the project DEMOCRASCI is to map out the principles of a democratised governance of science and explore its possible practical forms, based on a properly contextualised view of the value and aims of science in our democratic societies. ‘The Value-Free Ideal’ brings together researchers from the UK and Taiwan to investigate the practicability and desirability of value-freedom for economic science.
