Welcome to the conference page for Well-Being 2021: Knowledge for informed decisions.

This international conference will bring together leading scholars to discuss the quest for better lives. Economists traditionally advocated economic growth as the foremost policy goal, but now even economists often challenge this view. The discussion remains open, indeed flourishes, with more contributors than ever. How do we promote well-being? What are the best policies? What is the role for civil society?

For sanitary reasons, the conference has been postponed to 2022. Those who had registered will be notified and invited individually in due time. We have scheduled four keynote speakers and a roundtable discussing how policy-makers can integrate the findings from well-being studies.

Call for papers

When the conference dates are set, a call for papers will be issued and you will be notified accordingly.
