What are peaceful and just societies, and how can societies become more peaceful and just? In a collaboration between the disciplines of economics, law and political science, this series offers an overview and a discussion of the components needed for a society that serves its constituents and helps its members grow and thrive. We place an emphasis on five essential components. Each lecture will discuss one topic from the angle of the three disciplines, and look at where the challenges lie. One of the speakers will take the lead, but the other speakers will also be present to react from their field of research.
