Erasmus Initiative: Dynamics of Inclusive Prosperity

The Erasmus Initiative 'Dynamics of Inclusive Prosperity' revolves around the question how as many people as possible can benefit from prosperity growth while minimising negative consequences. Increasing prosperity requires a continuous alignment of the changing interests and values of governments, businesses, citizens and entrepreneurs. To map this dynamic field, scientists from the Erasmus School of Law, Rotterdam School of Management, Erasmus University (RSM) and Erasmus School of Philosophy engage in a multidisciplinary collaboration.
