Review: Summer Academy 2017
A summer of economics: 9 workshops, 90 participants, 20 lecturers. One week of eye-opening and engaging learning. Your academic experience of the year. August 4-11, 2017.
Brought to you by Network for Pluralist Economics and Protestant Academy of Thuringia.
Review: Summer Academy
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.
We have organised 9 workshops which will run in parallel throughout the week. Each workshop focuses on one alternative approach to economics or economic policy and will offer you a comprehensive introduction to the subject matter.
Review: Evening Lectures
Each night, an evening lecture will be given by a renowned expert focusing on a key issue of economic policy.
We have invited thought-provoking experts and leading scholars from various backgrounds to share with us their insights.
We are a group of students from across Germany. We are tired of waiting for universities to change their curricula in favour of pluralism and diversity, and are therefore taking matters into our own hands – this Summer Academy is the kind of education we want.
