Spatial Competition and Economic Policies: Discourses, Institutions and Practices.
A research project funded by the FWF (ZK-60). Duration: 2019-2024.
The project investigates the impact of an increasing reliance on “competitiveness” as a prime mode of social organization and as a core concept for designing institutions on different ontological levels of social reality. Given its innovative triangulation of theories and methods from the social sciences and the humanities, the project will produce novel insights on how economic knowledge on competition transgresses from academic debates into public discourses, legal regulations, practices of institutions and everyday life.
