Forum on socio-ecological transformation
The global transformation - social, ecological, utopian?
In its recently published issue, the international journal for Christian social ethics "Amos International" devotes itself entirely to the topic of "socio-ecological transformation". Based on the study by the Expert Group on Global Economy and Social Ethics, it asks "how transformation can succeed" and what role seemingly abstract concepts such as freedom, justice and growth play in this context. Two junior academics from the Bavarian Elite Academy describe their unease with the current economic model, while Dr. Locardia Shayamunda examines how the resilience of African smallholder farmers can be strengthened and Prof. Hans Diefenbacher describes the urgency of new measures and indices of prosperity.

The challenges and chances of interdisciplinary collaborations on climate/environmental change
Social scientists and humanities scholars increasingly become involved in interdisciplinary projects about climate and environmental change.
