Coordination and Social Sciences

Friday 22 September 2006

EconomiX invite you to attend the multidisciplinary conference:

to be held at the University of Paris X - Nanterre
(Conference Room – "K" Building)
Friday, 22nd September 2006


The issue of coordination is common to all social sciences which are interested in social interactions. Economics is specific in that it considers that social order may emerge spontaneously out of individual behaviour based upon the maximisation of satisfaction: his is the well-known image of the invisible hand. However, the idea of successful market coordination is in debate and coordination may also rely on a variety of means besides prices (rules, norms, conventions etc.).

The existence of coordination or cooperation failures calls for solutions without which interactions degenerate into conflicts. A variety of solutions may be considered in order to overcome coordination problems and avoid conflicts.

In this conference, we propose to confront views of economists, philosophers, lawyers and management scholars on the issues of cooperation and coordination.
