The tenth anniversary of the collapse of Lehmann Brothers is an appropriate time to interpret the consequences and changes triggered by this crisis. The workshop will focus on some fundamental issues of bank regulation and organisation, as well as on socio-political changes. How do the individual, the economy and society relate to each other and if the crisis was caused by the failure of a system, a social logic or the moral failure of individual actors?

Although these questions were pushed out of the media focus shortly after the crisis, they are gaining renewed attention on the anniversary. For this reason, it is important to go beyond the obvious consequences and analyses and establish links between many areas of science, business and society. This is how the deep-reaching impressions emerge.

The Schader Foundation, together with the research association “What should banks do?” invites opinion formation relevant – scientists, commentators and social representatives to the Workshop “Ten Years of Lehman Brothership: Interpretation and Significance of a Difficult Anniversaries”. The purpose of this workshop is to identify the main points of the necessary debate and possible overlooked problem areas.
