Université du Luxembourg : 20 Years of Ideas – Lecture series
This country is punching far beyond its weight. What it means to be small but global – a view from geography
Prof. Dr. Markus Hesse
Belval, Maison des Sciences Humaines, Black Box
From 18.00 to 20.00
Lecture held in English
The quote in the title comes from an expert interview in recent research. It illustrates the foundational fact that Luxembourg has considerably more economic power and dynamism that its size and institutional set-up can accommodate. This is the basic problem that runs through all development and planning conflicts, reinforced by institutional and procedural complexity and inertia. Appropriate strategies need to be structural. However, current practice is constrained by three different sorts of illusion: a growth illusion; a steering illusion; and a sustainability illusion. The lecture will close by reflecting upon some thoughts on how to address structural challenges.
