Subject:
Here are some more examples reflecting the permutation between wealth, power and knowledge from a PPE perspective. 1) How do we transform knowledge into wealth and power? - Data ethics: transparency and the right to privacy and informational self-determination. - Political entrepreneurs: Right- and left-wing newcomers occupying vacant niches? 2) How do we transform power into wealth and knowledge? - Corruption and cronyism: unearned and discriminatory political privileges and the many faces of rent-extraction - Discourse and Critical Theory: How power holders determine what counts as ???acceptable?? knowledge. 3)How do we transform wealth into power and knowledge? - Lobbying: benign consulting or corporate capture? - Intellectual property rights: Technology and knowhow transfers to developing countries. We welcome applications from students and scholars from all over the world who work in an interdisciplinary setting. By creating a vibrant, interactive environment we aim to explore these topics further. [gem?_?? den Informationen des Anbieters - according to site editor's information]
