Global Pluralist Economics Training
Decolonize economics! - Global Pluralist Economics Training
Welcome to the Global Pluralist Economics Training program! The present global economic relationships are complex and diverse – the answers of mainstream economics education, however, are often one-sided and mono-dimensional. Disappointed by the lack of pluralism and critical thinking in economics teaching, students and young scholars from all around the globe are trying to tackle these challenges.
However, as in mainstream economics, perspectives and academics from the global south are underrepresented in the movement for pluralism in economics so far. Especially when discussing topics like unequal development opportunities due to the long legacy of colonialism or various crises, like the current COVID-19 pandemic, it is precisely the global exchange between young people that is indispensable.
In order to be able to learn from and debate with each other on an equal footing, we are striving to further internationalize this movement. We want to diversify the discourse on a sustainable and just global economy. Therefore, more educational events on these topics shall take place online and locally in the global south. We are looking for inspiring people that are motivated to implement such educational events. This is why we established the Global Pluralist Economics Training (GPET).
So far we have had two GPET programs. Take a look at the amazing results and events our trainees organized in the past two years.
The GPET program will take place for a third time in 2022. Applications are open until July 1, 2022.
