About the conference
The aim of the conference is to bring together diverse perspectives on economic research, policy and theory. As the name suggests, the conference has a Post-Keynesian tradition, however, we welcome contributions from all paradigms and schools of thought. We strongly believe that it is only through a pluralist approach of challenging each of our predisposed perspectives in a constructive manner that we can develop sound, reliable and practicable understanding of the economic challenges we face.
The PhD Seminar will be held on the 19th April, the day before the conference begins.
