The PKES summer school on post-Keynesian Economics and Political Economy is back. Spend three days discussing topics in heterodox economics with leading economists and a group of peers with like-minded research interests. The summer school offers a topics-based introduction to post-Keynesian economics and Political Economy, including: growth and distribution, fiscal policy and austerity, ecological and environmental macroeconomics, money and finance, development, feminist economics and wealth and income inequality.

The school is aimed at undergraduate students and is an ideal basis for those wishing to continue postgraduate study on the topics mentioned above. We will however also consider applications from postgraduate students. Some background in Economic theory at the underground level is an advantage but not a requirement. Post Keynesian Economics and Political Economy seeks to provide foundations for progressive economic policies. For this reason, the summer school may also be of interest to a broader audience. 

The summer school will be held from 19th – 21st June 2024 at the University of Greenwich’s fantastic campus in London.

Registration is open and places are available, with and without accommodation, prices start at £35. There is a limited number of spaces which will be allocated on a first come first served basis.

In order to book your place please follow this link: Bookings are open until 09 June 2024, 11pm.

We encourage participants to join the Post-Keynesian Economics Society and especially subscribe to our mailing list. Membership for students is £10/year and includes online access to all issues of European Journal of Economics and Economic Policies: Intervention and Review of Keynesian Economics. Further benefits and info about PKES membership can be found here: .

The summer school is jointly organised by the Post-Keynesian Economic Society and the Institute of Political Economy Governance Finance and Accountability (PEGFA) at the University of Greenwich. We want to thank the Cambridge Political Economy Society Trust and PEGFA for their generous financial support.
