International Karl Polanyi Society
Foundation of the International Karl Polanyi Society - Vienna, May 8th, 2018
Karl Polanyi promoted an integrated analysis of complex, conflict-laden phenomena that did not resort to dogma. Engagement with and criticism of his concepts and predictions have inspired new research fields – be it in transformation studies, socioeconomics or cultural political economy. The International Karl Polanyi Society – founded May 8, 2018, in Vienna - will take up this intellectual legacy as well as the huge international interest. It will aim at promoting and broadening the research inspired by Karl Polanyi to understand the contradictions inherent in contemporary capitalism.
