What is SASE?

Founded in 1989 by Amitai Etzioni, SASE is an interdisciplinary academic association which primarily brings together scholars working in economic sociology and political economy. We seek to advance the understanding of economics and economic behaviors across a broad range of academic disciplines. We support the intellectual exploration of economic behavior and its policy implications at many levels – for societies and institutions –as well as the historical, philosophical, psychological, and ethical implications of these behaviors and policies. SASE members pursue inductive and deductive approaches to the study of economic behavior, with qualitative and quantitative methods at all levels of analysis.

Devoted to advancing socio-economics, SER deals with the analytical, political and moral questions arising at the intersection of economy and society test.
