Welcome to FS EcoPol Journal – a new platform for open political and economic discussion about topics of global importance by FS Economy & Politics initiative.
This blog is organized and run by the student initiative FS Economy & Politics. FS Economy & Politics is an initiative that wants to encourage FS Students to think outside of the box by debating about current political and macroeconomic issues. Our initiative thus provides a platform for FS Students to broaden their horizons. Our events range from small get-togethers with our members to big speeches with known politicians and economists. We encourage all students of Frankfurt School to join our events as they are an opportunity for a vivid exchange of political views as well as economic issues.
A generation ago, the predominant perspective was that addressing the big social issues was the responsibility only of political leaders. However, in recent times, we see top executives of some of the world’s largest organizations speaking about, stepping up, and defining their success in terms of issues that have historically been in the domain of political leaders.
In other words, for future business leaders it is essential to be aware of the forces that powerfully shape our societies, to understand where and how to respond for the good of their organizations and society as a whole.
Hence, the goal of the EcoPol Journal is to give Frankfurt School students short insights on a variety of topics focused around politics and economics and, above all, to prepare the new generation of business leaders for public and political debates with a point of view.
EcoPol Journal will be open to topics ranging from climate change and ESG investments to international conflicts and human rights. Any Frankfurt School student can be an author of an EcoPol Journal article. If you would like to contribute to the EcoPol Journal, send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org with your idea proposal. Any topics that you believe relevant and interesting are welcome. You can also reach out to our editorial team to give you topic proposal or help you formulate your own idea. The editorial team will also help you with a research and writing guide.
We look forward to your articles!
