Lucerne Master Class

Lucerne Master Classes | The Culture of Markets


Lucerne Master Classes have brought internationally renowned scholars to Lucerne since 2015. In a week-long course organized by the Graduate School of Humanities and Social Sciences (GSL) of the University of Lucerne, they - along with doctoral students from all over the world - analyse a variety of virulent problems in the market through a range of scientific perspectives.
Here you find further information about the Lucerne Master Class 2023 with Prof. Dr. Hanspeter Kriesi on the topic "European Politics in Times of Crises" that will take place October 17th to 20th, 2023.


The Lucerne Master Classes are supported by the Mercator Foundation Switzerland
