FS Economy & Politics is an initiative that wants to encourage FS Students to think outside the box by debating current political and macroeconomic issues. Our initiative thus provides a platform for FS Students to broaden their horizons. Our events range from small get-togethers with our members to big speeches as well as panel discussions with known politicians and economists. We encourage all students of Frankfurt School to join our events as they are an opportunity for a vivid exchange of political views.
“FS Economy & Politics provides a unique platform for students to discuss political as well as economic issues. Together with our members we continuously work to promote a vivid exchange between students and well-known decision-makers.”
“Apart from our big events with leading figures, it is our members that make FS Economy & Politics more than just a student initiative. Together, we discuss current topics in politics as well as economics that go beyond the usual scope in university life. Our exchanges inspire and motivate us to continue organizing even more outstanding events in the future.”
The Speeches department is responsible for the organization of speeches as well as disputations by well-known political or economic decision-makers. The events also provide the opportunity for critical discussions in form of an interactive Q&A session.
The Events Department organizes panel discussions on elections as well as other political and economic-related topics. Additionally, the department organizes internal events such as our General Assembly, get-togethers, excursions and trips.
The International Division focuses on events in the English language. Therefore, the department organizes speeches and panel discussions on international topics. Furthermore, the department provides political education for international students.
