PSE Annual Conferences on Global Issues

PSE is launching a series of annual conferences on the new economic and technological challenges, as well as on the new social and ethical standards the whole society is facing. Governments, businesses, NGOs and the world’s citizens face a paradigm shift in the current context of globalization, digital development, artificial intelligence and environmental and demographic transitions that drive in place more ethical and inclusive forms of governance.

A new agenda for research and exchanges between society and academia is therefore needed to face up to these challenges. The PSE Annual Conferences on Global Issues aims to bring together these different actors around the questions posed by the ongoing transitions in the context of a scientific project of international scope.

The ultimate goal is to find the way to a better reconciliation of private and public interest, an imperative to avoid the emergence of economic and social conflicts with dramatic consequences for the citizens of the world. It is therefore a question of bringing out intelligent strategies and policies, totally inscribed in the potentialities and dangers of current transitions.

PSE is glad to organize the first edition of this new series which will focus this year on:
