This multidisciplinary Summer School will reflect on ‘economy’ and ‘communion’, two words that are frequently perceived as being very distant from each other both in academic literature and applied sciences. The primary proposal and challenge behind this Summer School, therefore, is precisely to generate the space to examine these terms together and to focus on their interplay: an ‘economy of communion’.

Scholars are therefore invited to do an analysis of the EoC itself, those thousand-or-so Giovani Summer Schools 01 ridcompanies in all around the world that identify with this economic model with all the thought and work surrounding it, making it similar to an iceberg consisting of a movement trying to generate a different economy and which has made of sharing and communion its lifestyle.

Proposed topics of the Research Summer School include:

  • Beyond the Homo economicus,the diverse anthropologies of the economic agent;
  • The economic agent, social values and institutions;
  • Managing with values and social innovation;
  • Case studies from the EoC and Civil Economy companies;
  • Poverty alleviation, human development, global justice;
  • Gift, gratuity, reciprocity, sharing, trust, happiness and well-being, relationships;
  • Meritocracy, incentive, prices and motivation.
