Social sciences and economics have undergone enormous progress. While certain topics have been fully researched, others have remained largely under-researched or ignored. It is this discrepancy which prompted the research paradigm of "Crossing Bridges". For this volume, ten authors have joined forces to address the problem of under-researched topics, focusing in particular on gaps in interdisciplinary research between economics and other social sciences.
