Centre for Philosophy, Politics and Economics
PPE offers an integrative perspective on how to address contemporary societal challenges. In addition to the master's programme, the Centre for Philosophy, Politics and Economics has been established. This Centre stimulates and facilitates interdisciplinary research at the interface of philosophy, political theory and economics in the Faculty of Philosophy, the Faculty of Economics and Business, the Faculty of Arts, and the Faculty of Behavioural and Social Sciences. The areas that the Centre for PPE covers, include, but are not restricted to, moral philosophy, social epistemology, social ontology, political theory, philosophy of economics, monetary and financial economics, decision theory, financial ethics, international relations, organizational behaviour, and social psychology.
The Centre brings together students, PhD students, postdocs and senior researchers from the faculties mentioned above. It organizes seminars, workshops and conferences as well as a yearly PPE lecture by a high‐profile speaker from outside academia. It hosts international visiting scholars, and further extends existing connections with major international partners in Europe, the US and elsewhere.
