The Luxembourg Symposium

Dr. Mark Edwards

I expect that, in the wake of the Luxembourg Symposium called "Research Across Boundaries: Advances in [meta]theory Building", there will be the beginnings of a new climate around the whole notion of developing integral and integrative big pictures.

The connections and understandings developed between participants in the symposium will seed the emergence of a broader view on meta-level studies. There are many different researchers working on metatheorising activities of all kinds who were present at the gathering. It was a feature of the event that the shared interests and perspectives of people from many different research traditions resonated so strongly.

It is events like this that will lead to the establishment of meta-studies as a formallly recognised pursuit in universities and research centres.
