Bringing together heterodox approaches to economic challenges

In association with Anglia Ruskin University’s Faculty of Business & Law and The Centre for Pluralist Economics

The 25th annual conference celebrates the plurality in the field of Economics. It will be a space to present, discuss and develop heterodox approaches to the range of challenges economies face. From the global economic crisis to the climate crisis, from political turmoil to cost-of-living crises, there is a need to bring heterodox approaches to economic challenges to the forefront of public debates. 

Confirmed keynotes: Anna Alexandrova, Ha-Joon Chang, Daniela Gabor, Jayati Ghosh, Maria Cristina Marcuzzo, Mary Robertson, Crystal Simeoni, Rogerio Studart, and Ndongo Samba Sylla.

If early career scholars want to be considered for the Frederic S Lee Early Career Prize then they must submit a full paper by May 31st, 2023.
