I am delighted to welcome you to our website.
The Verein für Socialpolitik (German Economic Association) is an association of about 4.000 German-speaking economists from over 20 countries, primarily Germany, Austria and Switzerland. As one of the largest and oldest associations of economists in the world, our organization aims to further the development and internationalization of economics and related fields. With its 24 standing committees, the central aim of the Verein für Socialpolitik is to use economic analysis to improve economic policy and encourage public debate.
In 2016, the office of the German Economic Association moved to Berlin, particularly to see member interests and concerns more strongly represented. Just as you know it from last year, we will inform you regularly with our newsletter about the Associations´ activities and latest topics in research and science policy. Members receive the newsletter automatically.
To achieve its goals the Association depends on the financial backing and ideal support of sponsors and members. For questions and suggestions, please contact me personally or the managing director Karolin Herrmann.
Chairman of the German Economic Association
