Virtual Happy Hour after Money and Friday sessions

In Summer 2019, the Association for the Promotion of Political Economy and Law (APPEAL) and the Institute for New Economic Thought Young Scholars Initiative (INET YSI Finance, Law and Economics Working Group) organised a two day event with the University of Manchester Law School. The event brought more than 40 emerging and established scholars to spend time together in Manchester thinking about the intersection of political economy and law.

The event was part of a much broader momentum taking place within academic communities across the United States, the United Kingdom and Europe to build a new progressive community, which is woke to the limits of past movements (e.g., gender, race), literate in finance and governance (e.g., interested to understand contemporary banking operations), and committed to structural change (e.g., not at the expense of identity based reforms, but focused on a fresh socio-economic vision for society).

The aim of the Summer Academy this year is to contribute to this growing academic community by

1) continuing conversations into core themes at the interface of law, money and technology, and contribute to the project of transforming political economy;

2) experimenting with how our teaching and conversations can be informed and refine our political/ethical commitments; and

3) offering space for the community to continue getting to know each other and share best practices.

We have up to 300 spaces available each day on a first come basis, but registering here with eventbrite will mean you receive an email reminder in advance of the sessions.
