The election of Donald Trump, Brexit or, more recently, the diesel scandal: these are just a few of the many unexpected and momentous events with which we are increasingly confronted. Mega trends such as digitization are happening at a rapid pace and present politicians, business leaders and lawyers with the challenge of dealing with uncertain developments. The EBS Universität für Wirtschaft und Recht is taking this as an opportunity to increasingly address the phenomenon of uncertainty in research and teaching.
