Centre for Philosophy, Politics and Economics
Besides the PPE Master, Groningen has also made a firm commitment to become a hub for research at the interface of philosophy, politics and economics.
The Centre for Philosophy, Politics and Economics stimulates and facilitates such research by bringing together academics from the Faculty of Philosophy, the Faculty of Economics and Business, the Faculty of Arts, and the Faculty of Behavioural and Social Sciences. The Centre for PPE includes research areas such as moral philosophy, political theory, philosophy of economics, monetary and financial economics, decision theory, financial ethics, international relations, social epistemology, social ontology, moral psychology, organizational behaviour, and social psychology.
In its mission, the Centre involves students, PhD students, postdocs and senior researchers. It organizes seminars, workshops, a blog, a lectures series and conferences. The Centre also deepens existing connections with international partners in Europe, the US and elsewhere.
