Long treated as an economic tradition distinctive to Germany, Ordoliberalism has recently come to wider prominence in the context of European crisis politics, where it has widely been perceived as a major influence on policy-making and public discourse.

As contributors to the recent edited volume on Ordoliberalism, Law and the Rule of Economics (eds. Hien and Joerges; Hart Publishing), the speakers on this panel will explore Ordoliberalism from a variety of disciplinary perspectives, charting both its theoretical iterations and its contemporary political significance.
