DFG workshop on the history of sovereign debt

The DFG network “Doing Debt: Praxeology of Sovereign Debt in the Long 20th Century” met at the MPIfG in February for a two-day workshop hosted by Leon Wansleben, Research Group Leader at the MPIfG. During the workshop, the 21 attendees considered the relationship between situational decisions and structural dimensions in the history of sovereign debt. The scientific network is funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG) and aims to understand and explain historical change in the handling of public debt through interdisciplinary exchange between scholars of history, social sciences, and economics. The network’s organizers are Stefanie Middendorf (Leibniz Centre for Contemporary History Potsdam) and Julia Laura Rischbieter (University of Konstanz). Homepage of the DFG network “Doing Debt”
