Professor Hagedorn joins SES Club
Professor Hagedorn has become a member of the SES Club which is an international group of scholars developing a general framework and a common language for analysing Social-Ecological Systems. Professor Elinor Ostrom, 2009 Nobel Prize Winner in Economics, is one of the prominent members of the Club. The group works on a conceptual framework, elaborates theories and tests resulting hypotheses. To this end, the group develops a common conceptualization for an integrated database, e.g., a common ontology and a common set of variables, and collects data to be represented in the common conceptualization. First results regarding the general framework and the common language for analysing SES are planned to be published in a special issue of an international journal. /19.11.2009
