Initiators of the Consultation

The Future Markets Consultation is an initiative of an interdisciplinary group of researchers from four Dutch universities. In the past years they have been working on the research project ‘What Good Markets Are Good For’.  The Moral markets web portal was established as part of this project, but aims to be a platform for anybody working on or interested in the same topic.
