A partnership of the Buddhist Economics Research Platform, and Griffith University’s School of Environment and Multi-faith Centre, are pleased to announce the 3rd International Conference of the Buddhist Economics Research Platform titled “Buddhist Insights for a New World Economy”. The conference welcomes people from all perspectives and backgrounds and is intended to be a think-tank identifying practical knowledge and wisdom, with a focus upon Buddhism, for new economies where people matter (Schumacher, 1973).
The conference will be held January 18 and 19th, 2011, at Griffith University in Brisbane, Australia.
An additional day's activities visiting relevant places and people in the Brisbane region will be organised for January 20th for those who wish to participate.
The Buddhist Economics Research Platform aims to connect people and institutes engaged in developing Buddhist economic theory and practice and to spread ideas and working models of Buddhist economics and management to private enterprise, and public and other organizations, communities, and the general public. The Platform is a continuation of the cooperative research and publications of many scholars from Europe, Asia, Australia, and North America and follows the previous two conferences: 1. Economics with a Buddhist Face. 1st conference of the Buddhist Economics Research Platform held August 23-24, 2007 in Budapest, Hungary. 2. Buddhist Economics: Theory and Practice. 2nd international conference held at Ubon Ratchathani University, Thailand April 9-11, 2009.
The Buddhist Economics Research Platform began as a joint initiative of the Business Ethics Center of the Corvinus University of Budapest and the East-West Research Institute of the Budapest Buddhist University. The Platform aims to connect people and institutes engaged in developing Buddhist economic theory and practice and to spread ideas and working models of Buddhist economics to the general public
