DEMOCRASCI – The Value-Free Ideal in Economics Workshop

10:30am to 5:00pm, Senate Suite, University College, Durham University

Organised by Prof Julian Reiss (Durham University) and Prof Stephanie Ruphy (University of 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.
