Public Happiness

Interdisciplinary Conference

June 4-5, 2013

Organized by:

LUMSA University, Rome
University of Milan – Bicocca
University of Rome – Tor Vergata
St. Thomas Aquinas University, Rome

Public  happiness  was  one  of  the  mottos  of  the  European  classic  school  of  political  and  civil
economy, particularly on the Continent. This expression underlined the natural social dimension of
human happiness, and the analysis of the link between economy and welfare as the main subject
of the newborn economic science. Currently, happiness studies mainly emphasize  individual well-
being, and  its connections with other economic and social variables. The key social dimension of
happiness  is no  longer at  the center of political economy  today, as  it was  in  the early days of  the
discipline. In the present time of crisis we need to focus on the social nature of economic science:
analyses  of  social  capital,  relational  goods,  and  other  social  dimensions  are  an  outgrowth  of
happiness studies, with a special new attention for policy implications, and therefore for the political
and social dimensions of well-being. This conference will focus on the social and policy dimensions
of happiness, and their connections with empirical, theoretical and historical issues.

Keynote  speakers  include: Robert Sugden, Bruno  Frey, Carol Graham, Ruut Veenhoven, Carol
Ryff, Nicholas Theocharakis, Alois Stutzer and Stefano Zamagni.

Venue: the St. Thomas Aquinas University, Rome, Largo Angelicum, 1
