ISQOLS Keynote: Edward F. Diener Lecture

Professor Jan-Emmanuel De Neve, Director of the Wellbeing Research Centre at the University of Oxford, will deliver the Edward F. Diener Lecture at the International Society for Quality-of-Life Studies’ (ISQOLS) 21st Annual Conference in 2023.

Hosted in the city of Rotterdam, the Netherlands, the ISQOLS 2023 Conference will offer a forum for discussion of the research findings concerning quality of life, well-being, and happiness.

The theme of ISQOLS 2023 is Towards a People-First Economy and Society: A World to Win. When we would like to truly improve quality-of-life, we need an economy and society that does not put shareholders above all stakeholders. Instead we need an economy and society in which economic growth is not seen as the ultimate goals but as a means to achieve a greater happiness for a greater number of people and in which the purpose of a company shifts from profit maximization to benefit of all stakeholders, also including employees, customers and communities. However, what will it take? Will governments lead us into the next era or will business do so? And finally, can capitalism work for the greater good, transforming the economy into a good and equitable economy, in which everyone can enjoy a good quality of life and feel the benefits of economic growth?
