Conference: Shifting Paradigms – Economics in the 21st Century

Posted on Updated on

17-19 November 2017, University of Aberdeen

Join us at our annual conference featuring more than 20 select speakers from Oxford, Leeds, LSE, UCL, Greenwich, the New Economics Foundation and, of course, Aberdeen!


With Shifting Paradigms, we aim to create a critical and diverse academic forum to uncover and debate the economic challenges of our time. These include:


1. The Ecological Boundaries of the Planet
2. The Political Economy of Gender, Race, and Religion
3. Macroeconomic Policy & the Crisis of Global Finance
4. The Future of Automation and Artificial Intelligence




We are also holding an essay competition, which will endow gifted undergraduate students with the unique opportunity to present their papers at a real academic conference. Per each of our four topics, three winning essays will be selected. Travel, accommodation, and ticket costs will be covered for all twelve winners of the competition. Make sure to submit your paper – don’t pass up this chance!
