Verein für Socialpolitik Annual Conference 2019

Sun, 22 Sep 2019 12:00:00 AM – Wed, 25 Sep 2019 11:59:59 PM

The Verein für Socialpolitik was founded in 1873. The establishment of the association can be traced to a meeting of journalists, scientists, political activists, and businesspeople, and was directed against two popular extreme ideas of the day. One was laissez-faire social policy propagated by the German Manchester School. The other was the emerging revolutionary idea of socialism.

The objective of the founders, which were soon known as "armchair socialists" (Kathedersozialisten), was - in the words of chairman Gustav Schmoller (who served from 1890 to 1917) - to "lift, educate, and reconcile the lower classes on the basis of the existing order, so that they would fit into the organism in harmony and peace”. 

Under the stewardship of Schmoller, the Verein evolved from a sociopolitical "Agitation Club" into a more neutral, multidisciplinary association, but was marked by a series of internal conflicts.
