Piecing Together a Paradigm

YSI Plenary

Oct 19–22, 2016 Download .ics

Budapest | Central European University

Registration is closed

New approaches are being developed, but efforts are fragmented and need to be brought together if we hope to piece together a paradigm. 

On October 19-22, 2016, at the Central European University in Budapest, the Young Scholars Initiative (YSI) will hold its first plenary, under the title “Piecing Together a Paradigm”.

The event will bring together 15 diverse YSI working groups — each searching for frameworks to guide their research — to place their work in a bigger picture, asking how the specific questions of each group fit together.

We envision the plenary as an opportunity for our working groups to encounter and inspire each other enriched by the mentorship of more than 40 pre-eminent thinkers, including:

S.M. Amadae Jonathan Ostry
Giovanni Dosi
Sheila Dow Richard Koo
Mariana Mazzucato
Doyne Farmer Geoffrey Hodgson Don Ross
Alan Kirman
Gustav Horn Margaret Schabas
Martin Schürz William Lazonick Antonella Stirati
Annelise Riles Marc Lavoie Julie Nelson
Adam Zawadowski Alyssa Schneebaum Engelbert Stockhammer
Tiago Mata Perry Mehrling Zoltan Pozsar
Beatrice Cherrier Arturo O’Connell Orsola Costantini
Sanjay Reddy Rick McGahey Zbigniew Truchlewski
Annamaria Simonazzi
Michael Dorsch Andrea Petö
Martin Kahanec Natália Bracarense Attila Melegh
Stephen Kinsella Daniel Neilson Gary Dymski
Philip Mirowski Achim Kemmerling Ajit Sinha
Benjamin Wood Garret Christensen Andrew Chang
Thomas Ferguson Adair Turner Rob Johnson


The plenary will also help to set the research agenda for YSI’s coming year and will include:

  • Comprehensive parallel working group meeting schedule for 15 working groups
  • High profile open sessions hosted by the working groups
  • Keynote addresses and big picture panels with leading economic thinkers
  • Community plenaries to set our overall agenda for the coming year
