Spatial Competition and Economic Policies (SPACE)

Competition and Competitivity plays an important political role today and serves as a reference point for human action in many areas. Against this background, the transdisciplinary research project SPACE investigates how the economic logic of competition emerged historically in academic discourse and has found its way into political and public debates, laws and ultimately our daily lives. It uses an innovative mix of economics, sociology, and ethnology methods, combining academic abstraction with everyday applicability of the results.
