The Verein für Socialpolitik
With roughly 4,000 personal and institutional members, the Verein für Socialpolitik is one of the largest professional economics associations in Europe. Members hail from all over the world; more than 2,000 are young academic scholars, and 1,200 are university professors from over 20 different countries, primarily from the German-speaking countries- Germany, Austria, and Switzerland.
The Verien’s chief goal is the promotion of scientific discourse on economic and sociopolitical topics, as well as the maintenance of international research networks for German-language social scientists. To this end, the Verein organizes an annual convention - 23 standing field committees, the publication of two journals, and an extensive program designed to support the participation of young scientists at international academic conferences.
