Summer Academy for Pluralist Economics 2018: Ten Years After The Crash
Our Summer Academy. Your economics: 9 workshops, 90 participants, 20 lecturers. One week of eye-opening and engaging learning. Your academic experience of the year. August 3-10, 2018.
Do you have the impression that contemporary societies face daunting challenges and that these challenges need to be addressed on the level of the economy? Are you asking yourself how we can analyse, comprehend and shape the economy?
As of now, discourses on economics and economic policy are marked by insisting that “there is no alternative” and pointing out “the hard facts”. We respond: The economy is a variegated, highly complex phenomenon. Yet, mainstream economics is far too narrow and one-dimensional in its approach to grasp this, and offers little room for critical reflection.
It is high time to change this, high time for our summer school! Here is where you will be able to let your curiosity and inquisitiveness run free, to explore alternative approaches to economics and to engage with a broad-range of like-minded students, inspiring activists and leading scholars.
Register now for the Summer School! From August 3th – 10th, participants from Germany, Europe and the World will gather in Neudietendorf (near Erfurt) in Germany to practice a different form of economics education. We are looking forward to receiving your application!
We live in times of unrest. Climate change and environmental destruction; the crisis of the European Union and the rise of right-wing populism; concentration of wealth and casualization, tax evasion and youth unemployment - today’s world is in a mess. We want to do justice to these issues and look beyond the narrow confinements of mainstream economics for solutions.
If you have any questions or want to get in touch with us - just drop us a message.
