Summer Academy for Pluralist Economics 2018: Organization Team
Students worldwide campaign for more pluralism in economics. The changes in economics education so far aren’t fundamental enough and are most often far too slow. This is why we organise our education by ourselves now. For example with this summer academy.
We are members of the Netzwerk Plurale Ökonomik (Network for Pluralist Economics) and the International Student Initiative for Pluralism in Economics. The Netzwerk has local groups from many universities in Germany and ISIPE is active worldwide for diversity in theories and methods as well as interdisciplinary exchange and cooperation. Our summer academy proves that this is possible.
For the Summer Academy, we joined forces with the Protestant Academy of Thuringia. They have a picturesque and historic conference centre with a spacious park. As a vivid actor in civic education, the Evangelische Akademie Thüringen offers rooms for civil discourse about the conditions of a democratic, liberal and just society.
Let us know if you have any questions or want to get in touch with us. We are looking forward to your message.
