  • Institutional change: explaining the formation of specific societal arrangements (especially market systems)
  • Transitions of economy and society: explaining why some societies are capable of adapting their organisational structure to new challenges, and undergoing a successful transition of economy and society, while others lack this capability or experience a painful or unsustainable transition
  • Measuring societal success: relating economic success in the long run, measured for instance in GDP per capita, to other measures, including equity and welfare, the resilience to shocks and disasters, and sustainability
  • Comparative analysis: how to further develop and use comparisons at the local, regional, national and supra-national levels
