On January 12, 2018, the MaxPo celebrated its 5th Anniversary with an International Conference about "Destabilizing Orders – Understanding the Consequences of Neoliberalism".

This conference addressed the different facets of social destabilization that we observe today. It marked the fifth anniversary of the founding of MaxPo, the Max Planck Sciences Po Center on Coping with Instability in Market Societies. Presentations from accomplished scholars in the fields of economic history, sociology, political science, and economics analyzed different aspects of the overarching phenomenon of social destabilization, identifying common threats in the diverse developments currently observed.

 Presenters focused on specific arguments within six broad themes: Financial Markets Between Stability and Instability; Inequalities of the Western World; Colliding Geographies: Class, Place, and Identity after Brexit and Trump; Political Economy in an Age of Permanent Austerity; Political Elites and Experts; and Social Science at the Crossroads, discussed in a concluding round table that explored the question of "Where do we go from here?"
