Organizing in Times of Uncertainty – Research Perspectives of Organizational Education NW 32 Organizational Education

Terror, war, right-wing-extremism, climate change - Network 32 discusses uncertainty in its relevance and multiple meanings for learning and education in, by and between organizations. Uncertainty is inherent to the dynamics of multiple political, economic, and social conditions of organizing and has recently been conceptualized as a socio-cultural, ontological and epistemological core category for theorizing and doing empirical research on organization.
