Shared Societies International Workshop in Maastricht

Shared Societies International Workshop in Maastricht

April 04, 2012

The Club de Madrid and the Maastricht School of Management hosted a Shared Societies International Workshop on “Can the Economics of Shared Societies Support more Resilient Economies and Global Sustainability?“ in Maastricht, The Netherlands, on 28th, 29th and 30th of March 2012.

The Club de Madrid and the Maastricht School of Management brought together a group of academics and practitioners aimed to review and consolidate the current state of knowledge on the impact of shared societies on economic performance and advance understanding of the underlying dynamics of that relationship, thereby connecting theory to policy and practice.

Although they could not attend the workshop, Patricia Justino (Institute of Development Studies) and Ernesto Ottone (CEPAL), also sent papers to be presented.

Member Wim Kok –  Prime Minister of the Netherlands (1994-2002) and President of the Club de Madrid - hosted the welcoming dinner for all the participants where he “anticipated that the findings of the conference would demonstrate the link between Shared Societies and economic well being and (...) explain more clearly the nature of the relationship”.

Finally, during the Conference, we explored several communication tools – such as the live streaming (at http://research.msm.nl/) and the live tweeting (using the hashtag #SharedSocieties from @CLUBdeMADRID)
