2019 Annual ASEER (GSÖBW) Conference

Festival for Pluralism

At the third annual conference of the Association for Socioeconomic Education and Research (ASEER) | 20-22 February 2019 | University of Duisburg-Essen


At the third annual conference of the Association for socioeconomic education and research (ASEER), students and young academics are given the opportunity to share their own experiences, present projects and exchange ideas with fellow students, other organisations, networks and foundations. Following the theme "crossing borders, embracing pluralism", the festival avoids the usual conference formats and enables an interactive exchange between the participants with lightning talks, world cafés and open spaces.

The Festival for Pluralism will already start on Wednesday, 20 February: on the eve of the main conference, the Institute for Socioeconomics of the University of Duisburg-Essen and the ASEER invite you to a casual get-together with a small evening programme organised by the Network for Pluralist Economics.
