"Our attitude toward the state is that of consumers"

Conversations between disciplines: interview with business economist Josef Bernhart and geographer Stefan Schneiderbauer.

29 September 2022by Barbara Baumgartner, Sigrid Hechensteiner

The public management expert Josef Bernhart reminds us that the state is all of us. And the bureaucracy we like to moan about also creates security and guarantees equal rules for society. How managing risks and the day-to-day existence of mountain regions in low-income countries can be threatened without functioning administration and controls is something that geographer Stefan Schneiderbauer sees time and again. The two researchers work under conceivably different conditions, but with the same goal: sustainable development.
