European Society for Ecological Economics (ESEE), in co-operation
with the German associations for ecological economics VÖÖ
and VÖW, invite you to meet in Leipzig for the 7th international
The conference will explore contemporary scientific approaches for
putting the concept of Sustainable Development into research and
into practice, and it will focus on bridging natural and social
sciences. It will address sustainability topics such as loss of
biodiversity, human vulnerability to global change and water problems
on all geographical and institutional levels. The conference aims
to contribute to a better understanding of societal and natural
processes and their interaction by integrating scientific methodologies
to overcome the shortcomings of disciplinary and multi-disciplinary
approaches. Impediments to inter- and transdisciplinary research
will be examined and new research concepts for sustainability identified.

FOR PAPER FOR A SESSION on Karl William Kapp (1910-1976)
to be submitted to ESEE 2007 conference (Leipzig 5-8 June 2007,
works and ideas of the German institutional economist K.W. Kapp
(1910-1976) are still very topical. His contributions on economic
development and environmental policy are strongly interlinked and
show the need of such integration for any reasonable strategy for
sustainable development. His approach already contained most of
what today is described as Ecological Economics, including the refusal
of reductionism and of commensurability along with its many implications.
This session, by presenting original research on Kapp's works, aims
at increasing awareness of this great economist among ecological
economists and at stimulating direct reading of his writings. ANYONE
INTERESTED IN is kindly asked to contact Tommaso Luzzati (firstname.lastname@example.org)
as soon as possible. The deadline for submitting a 2pages abstract
is 25 August 2006.
