We are pleased to announce a terrific Max Weber Conference on "Democracy and Expertise" to be held at NYU's Deutsches Haus on March 31 and April 1, 2016. The conference features a superb lineup, including network members Christine Landfried (NYU & Hamburg) and Gráinne de Búrca (NYU), alongside Mario Monti (Bocconi University; formerly Prime Minister of Italy and European Commissioner), Robert Post (Yale), Katharina Pistor (Columbia), and many others. The conference will explore the tension between democracy and expertise in an age of innovation and specialization, and at a time when the European Union faces sharp technical and democratic challenges on every side.
Further information and a conference schedule are available here. Please note that RSVP is required to deutscheshaus.rsvp (at) nyu.edu.
