SOAS ECONOMICS ANNUAL CONFERENCE

20-21 September 2019 - BGLT, SOAS University of London

Economics and Political Economy for a Fairer World Celebrating 65 years of Economics at SOAS


SOAS Economics is excited to announce its first annual event celebrating its unique traditions in Political Economy research and teaching. This comes at an opportune moment as the Department enters its thirtieth session! Our aim, individually as researchers, and as an academic department, continues to be the teaching and research of Economics and Political Economy for a Fairer World. This has never been more urgent, given the challenges we face on global, national and local levels, from the rise of nationalist politics and entrenching economic inequalities to the intensifying environmental challenges. This annual event will be an opportunity to showcase the Department’s contributions to these urgent questions and invite discussion on the direction of future SOAS Economics research. Our guests and speakers include alumni, current SOAS Economics researchers and friends and collaborators sharing our research interests.

We warmly invite you to join us for this event.

  • Macroeconomics, Finance and Financialisation
  • Sustainable Economic Futures
  • Inequality, Gender and Labour Markets
