Advances in Heterodox Economics, Routledge

The Advances in Heterodox Economics series promotes the development of heterodox economics beyond the existing paradigms of Austrian, Feminist, Institutional-Evolutionary, Marxian, Post Keynesian, Radical, Social, and Sraffian economics. The series aims to publish books in five areas: (1) the synthesis of two or more heterodox approaches in the general fields of microeconomics and macroeconomics, or in specialized fields such as ecological or development economics; (2) the history and philosophy of heterodox economics, including intellectual biographies, institutional histories, and histories of theoretical controversies past and present; (3) the development of novel heterodox theories, such as feminist theories of international trade; (4) explorations of heterodox approaches to economic education; and (5) anthologies of heterodox work from all approaches in a specific field or area. The editor, associate editor, and editorial board work closely with individual authors and editors to ensure the quality of all published works.

Advances in New Institutional Analysis, Edward Elgar

Understanding the nature and role of institutions in the dynamics and failures of modern economies is an increasing concern among scholars and policy makers. Substantial progress has been made in economics as well as in other social sciences, particularly political science, history, sociology and the managerial sciences. New institutional scholars have been, and remain, at the forefront of this movement. Alternative views have also been proposed that deserve consideration. This series intends to promote the development and diffusion of these analyses with books from leading contributors as well as younger up-and-coming scholars.

The series will include topics such as:

  • Institutions and growth

  • Transaction cost economics

  • The role of formal rules and legal institutions

  • Regulation and deregulation

  • Political institutions and the state

  • Institutions and modes of governance

  • Contracting issues

  • Customs, beliefs and institutional changes.

    The series will be essential reading for researchers in economics, the social and managerial sciences, as well as policymakers.

Critical Studies in Finance and Stability

The 2007/8 Banking Crash has induced a major and wide-ranging discussion on the subject of financial (in)stability and a need to revaluate theory and policy. The response of policy-makers to the crisis has been to refocus fiscal and monetary policy on financial stabilisation and reconstruction. However, this has been done with only vague ideas of bank recapitalisation and ‘Keynesian’ reflation aroused by the exigencies of the crisis, rather than the application of any systematic theory or theories of financial instability.

Routledge Critical Studies in Finance and Stability, edited by Jan Toporowski from SOAS, University of London covers a range of issues in the area of finance including instability, systemic failure, financial macroeconomics in the vein of Hyman P. Minsky, Ben Bernanke and Mark Gertler, central bank operations, financial regulation, developing countries and financial crises, new portfolio theory and New International Monetary and Financial Architecture.

Economics as Social Theory, Routledge

Social theory is experiencing something of a revival within economics. Critical analyses of the particular nature of the subject matter of social studies and of the types of method, categories and modes of explanation that can legitimately be endorsed for the scientific study of social objects, are reemerging. Economists are again addressing such issues as the relationship between agency and structure, between economy and the rest of society, and between the enquirer and the object of enquiry. There is a renewed interest in elaborating basic categories such as causation, competition, culture, discrimination, evolution, money, need, order, organization, power probability, process, rationality, technology, time, truth, uncertainty, value, etc. The objective for this series is to facilitate this revival further. In contemporary economics the label theory has been appropriated by a group that confines itself to largely asocial, ahistorical, mathematical modeling . Economics is Social Theory thus reclaims the theory label, offering a platform for alternative rigorous, but broader and more critical conception of theorizing.

Frontiers of Political Economy, Routledge

In recent years, there has been widespread criticism of mainstream Economics. This has taken many forms, from methodological critiques of its excessive formalism, to concern about its failure to connect with many of the most pressing social issues. This series provides a forum for research which is developing alternative forms of economic analysis. Reclaiming the traditional political economy title, it refrains from emphasizing any single school of thought, but instead attempts to foster greater diversity within Economics.

Historical Materialism Book Series, Brill

After the disappearance of Marxism as a (supposed) state ideology, a need for a serious and long-term book publishing programme on Marxism was recognized. Most publishers of scholarly work have abandoned any of the systematic publication of critical research on Marxist theory that they may have indulged in during the 1970s and early 1980s. The HM book series addresses this great gap with original monographs, translated texts and reprints of classics works.

IAFFE Advances in Feminist Economics, Routledge

The International Association for Feminist Economics (IAFFE) aims to increase the visibility and range of economic research on gender; facilitate communication among scholars, policymakers, and activists concerned with women's wellbeing and empowerment; promote discussions among policy makers about interventions which serve women's needs; educate economists, policymakers, and the general public about feminist perspectives on economic issues; foster feminist evaluations of economics as a discipline; expose the gender blindness characteristic of much social science and the ways in which this impoverishes all research - even research that does not explicitly concern women’s issues; help expand opportunities for women, especially women from underrepresented groups, within economics; and, encourage the inclusion of feminist perspectives in the teaching of economics.

The IAFFE book series pursues the aims of the organization by providing a forum in which scholars have space to develop their ideas at length and in detail. The series exemplifies the value of feminist research and the high standard of IAFFE-sponsored scholarship.

IIPPE Political Economy and Development, Pluto Press

Political economy and the theory of economic and social development have long been fellow travellers, sharing an interdisciplinary and multi-dimensional character. Over the last fifty years, mainstream economics has become totally formalistic, attaching itself to increasingly narrow methods and techniques at the expense of other approaches. Despite this narrowness, neoclassical economics has expanded its domain of application to other social sciences, but has shown itself incapable of addressing social phenomena and coming to terms with current developments in the world economy. With world financial crises no longer a distant memory, and neoliberalism and postmodernism in retreat, prospects for political economy have strengthened. It allows constructive liaison between the dismal and other social sciences and rich potential in charting and explaining combined and uneven development. This series objective supports revival and renewal of political economy both in itself and in dialogue with other social sciences. Drawing on rich traditions, we invite contributions that constructively engage with heterodox economics, critically assess mainstream economics, address contemporary developments, and offer alternative policy prescriptions.

INEM Advances in Economic Methodology, Routeldge

The field of economic methodology has expanded rapidly during the last few decades. This expansion has occurred in part because of changes within the discipline of economics, in part because of changes in the prevailing philosophical conception of scientific knowledge, and also because of various transformations within wider society. Research in economic methodology now reflects not only developments in contemporary economic theory, the history of economic thought, and the philosophy of science; but it also reflects developments in science studies, historical epistemology, and social theorizing more generally. The field of economic methodology still includes the search for rules for the proper conduct of economic science, but it also covers a vast array of other subjects and accommodates a variety of different approaches to those subjects.

The objective of this series is to provide a forum for the publication of significant works in the growing field economic methodology. Since the series defines methodology quite broadly, it will publish books on a wide range of different methodological subjects. The series is also open to a variety of different types of works: original research monographs, edited collections, as well as republication of significant earlier contributions to the methodological literature. The International Network for Economic Methodology (INEM) is proud to sponsor this important series of contributions to the methodological literature

New Horizons in Institutional and Evolutionary Economics, Edward Elgar

Economics today is at a crossroads. New ideas and approaches are challenging the largely static and equilibrium-oriented models that used to dominate mainstream economics. The study of economic institutions long neglected in the economics textbooks has returned to the forefront of theoretical and empirical investigation. This challenging and interdisciplinary series publishes leading works at the forefront of institutional and evolutionary theory and focuses on cutting-edge analyses of modern socio-economic systems. The aim is to understand both the institutional structures of modern economies and the processes of economic evolution and development. Contributions will be from all forms of evolutionary and institutional economics, as well as from post Keynesian, Austrian and other schools. The overriding aim is to understand the processes of institutional transformation and economic change.

It has the ambitious purpose of reinvigorating political economy as a progressive force for understanding social and economic change. The series stimulates new work that will combine technical knowledge provided by the dismal science and the wisdom gleaned from the serious study of the worldly philosophy . It is designed to reinvigorate our understanding of the social world by encouraging a multidisciplinary approach to the challenges confronting society in the next century.

Palgrave Studies in Latin American Heterodox Economics, Palgrave Macmillan

The aim of the series is to analyze the economic, social, and political evolution of countries in Latin America. The authors in the series are serious heterodox economics scholars who want to shine light on Latin America's economic profile. Each book in the series takes on a single topic (crisis, growth, income distribution, the manufacturing sector, etc.), either from the point of view of a single country or a group of them. This analysis then in turn adds to our understanding of Latin America's regional economic character and development challenges and capabilities. In this way, this series makes an unusual contribution to economics by studying a region as a whole without losing sight of the particularities of each country as a part. Series Editor: Juan Santarcángelo (New School University).

Perspectives from Social Economics, Springer

In the current economic, financial, and political climate, recognizing and studying the ethical and social aspects of the economy are more important than ever. Social economics has long emphasized these very aspects, and can provide unique perspectives on issues of critical importance to citizens, businesses, and governments around the world. This series will feature a sharp discussion of the explicit ethical/social components of important policy and social issues, drawing on the varied approaches used by social economists around the world. Through a strong mix of outward-looking books, focusing on the insights of social economics to contemporary policy and social issues, and inward-looking books, focusing on the philosophy and methodology of social economics itself, this series will be of enormous value to both social economists and policy makers.

Research in Political Economy, Emerald Publishing

This Research annual is founded on analyzing society in a manner consistent with classical Marxism. International in scope, the annual volumes deal primarily with economic and political issues and the unity between them. Both theoretical and empirical works are included. While published papers must be appropriate for developing class analysis of society, they need not be explicitly Marxist. The Research can accept papers up to 50 pages in print (on occasion, even longer) and thus is appropriate for work which is not book length, yet is substantial. For submissions, please send your paper, double-spaced type with noting as endnotes followed by a reference list, to the editor either electronically or three copies to the postal address above. Usual practice is review by two competent persons, on a double-blind basis, within a relatively short period of time.

Edward Elgar

Edward Elgar Publishing is a leading international academic and professional publisher with a strong focus on the social sciences and legal fields.

We believe it is difficult for large corporate publishers who often suffer from very high levels of staff turnover, top down management and mass production processes to replicate the experience we can provide. Edward Elgar Publishing was conceived as an international scholarly press and from the beginning our sales were derived equally from Europe, North America and Asia Pacific regions, reflecting our author base and focus on topics of global interest. Today the Middle East, Latin America and a number of African countries are also important markets.

Monthly Review Press

The Monthly Review is an independent socialist magazine that began publication in New York City in May 1949. The magazine was established by economist Paul M. Sweezy and journalist and historian Leo Huberman. It is known for its critical but spirited socialism, independent of any political organization, and has provided pioneering analyses of political economy, imperialism, and Third World struggles. Over the years, it has aimed to offer radical critique and support the building of a just economy and society, maintaining a tradition of analyzing contemporary issues through a Marxist perspective without being bound to any narrow view or party line.

The Monthly Review has played a significant role in the intellectual discourse around socialism, particularly in the United States, navigating through different political climates including the McCarthy era, the rise of the New Left, and periods of neoliberalism. The magazine's commitment to radical politics has remained steady, and it has continued to engage with issues related to the Third World, capitalist crises, and ecological challenges. Today, under the editorial committee led by John Bellamy Foster, the Monthly Review continues its mission of providing in-depth analysis and promoting socialist ideas

Regular Conferences

ASSA Meetings - US

The acronym ASSA stands for "Allied Social Science Association" and is basically a marketing label denoting an annual three-day conference in some major US-city at the start of every new year. The conference is organized by the American Economic Association and serves as a major gathering in mainstream economics. However, the AEA also invites a series of 'recognized' partners to contribute sessions to the conference. In this course a series of heterodox economic associations based (partly) in the US, like URPE, AFEE, ASE or IAFFE, are regularly enriching the ASSA-conferences by providing space for the discussion and advancement of heterodox economics. Hence, the ASSA is a an interesting place to be as it represents the full diversity of economic thought, although, regrettably, in roughly correct proportions.

The official ASSA-page managed by the AEA can be found here.
Calls for heterodox ASSA-sessions are collected and published in the Heterodox Economics Newsletter.

Young Economists Conference. html

Progressive economists and social scientists should research an economy that works for working people. Productive and reproductive labor are the driving forces of society. Recent debates on labor shortages and the care crisis emphasize that centrality, at the same time the literature consistently shows that inflation, the climate crisis and political polarization over-proportionally impact workers, the unemployed and those primarily performing unpaid care labor.  

The Young Economists Conference fosters debates on the dynamics and inequalities of labor, current realities as well as proposals for future changes. A thorough and multi-disciplinary analysis can provide a realistic understanding of the economy and the groundwork for necessary change.  

The Chamber of Labor Vienna, the Chamber of Labor Upper Austria, the Society for Pluralism in Economics Vienna and INET’s Young Scholars’ Initiative as well as our partner organizations (the VWZ Center for Students of Economics at WU Vienna, the Student representatives for the Master's Programs Economics, Socioeconomics & Socio-Ecological Economics and Policy at WU Vienna and the Roter Börsenkrach representatives for students of economics at the University of Vienna) host the Young Economists Conference in Vienna, Austria.

They invite researchers in the early stages of their career (Master, pre- or post-doc) from all professions, especially economics, political sciences and sociology, to submit their work. They especially encourage female and LGBTIQ* contributors as well as researchers of color and first generation academics to present at the conference.  

INET’s Young Scholars’ Initiative generously sponsors up to ten travel stipends for researchers from countries in the Global South. The conference language is English. The conference is free of charge, presenters will be reimbursed for train travel cost within Austria, accommodations are paid for. An outstanding contribution will be awarded the Eduard März Prize of €1,000.

ECLAC Summer School on "Latin American economies"

In ECLAC's analytical tradition, production structure, technological progress and trade specialization are the main variables that explain long-run economic and social development. ECLAC's contributions are part of a tradition in economic theory that combines the Keynesian paradigm with the Schumpeterian and evolutionist traditions. The former pays special attention to income distribution and full employment policies, while the latter focuses on the dynamics of learning, technological innovation and diffusion and its impact on the production patterns. These traditions recognize that industrial and technological policies are crucial to foster developing countries' convergence with the developed economies in terms of technological capabilities and per capita GDP. In ECLAC's School, the participants debate these topics in an open, plural and multidisciplinary framework. They study empirical and theoretical topics emphasizing recent Latin American economic history and its impacts on economic perspectives and policies.

Information on the ECLAC Summer School can be found here.

ESHET Summer School

The Summer School is open to PhD students and young scholars from the fields of History of Economic Thought, Economic Philosophy and Economic History. Four to six papers will be presented each day on open themes, chosen on the basis of the students’ fields of research, related to the history of economic thought, economic methodology, economic philosophy or economic history. The subjects of the papers may differ from the Summer School’s main theme. The presentations will take place in the presence of the members of the scientific committee and of some invited speakers, thus covering a broad area of expertise. Each presentation will be commented by a discussant, chosen among the young scholars, followed by a question and answer session with the audience.

Information on the ESHET Summer School can be found here.

FMM Summer School on "Keynesian Macroeconomics and European Economic Policies

The European Journal of Economics and Economic Policies: Intervention (EJEEP) is a double blind peer-reviewed journal which serves as a forum for studies in macroeconomic theory, economic institutions and economic policies. The managing editors aim for productive debates involving one or more variants of heterodox economics, and invite contributions acknowledging the pluralism of research approaches. The submission of both theoretical and empirical work is encouraged. The managing editors contend that a wide variety of institutional and social factors shape economic life and economic processes. Only a careful study and integration of such factors into economics will lead to theoretical progress and to competent economic policy recommendations. This was clearly demonstrated by the inadequacy of orthodox economics, based on neoclassical foundations, to provide suitable explanations and responses to recent financial and economic crises. Since 2023, EJEEP has been published as a scholar-led Diamond Open Access journal in cooperation with Open Library Economics (OLEcon), an initiative of ZBW – Leibniz Information Centre for Economics, Germany.

This includes presentation and critical discussion of their own scientific work. Several internationally renown economists also present their insights and offer a glance at contemporary cutting-edge economics.

Information on the Schumpeter Summer School can be found here.

INEM Summer School in Philosophy of Economics

The summer school is intended to foster reflection on the changing identity of economics after the empirical turn, model transfer in between economic sub-fields, how economics is modelling the social structure of science, and other cutting edge topics in history and philosophy of economics.

The school consists of lectures, presentations, and tutorials. The invited speakers lecture on the topics related to the school’s general theme, while students have 30 minutes to present their papers. During tutorials, a faculty member discusses with a student their paper in a one-to-one 1-hour discussion.

Papers by students can address any topic in the philosophy, methodology, or history of economics, also a topic different from the summer school’s main theme.

PKES Summer School

Summer School in Post-Keynesian Economics and Political Economy

Starting in 2013, PKES has run an annual multi-day Introductory Summer School in Post Keynesian Economics and Political Economy. This is primarily aimed at final-year undergraduates and master's students. Some background in Economic theory at the underground level is an advantage but not a requirement.
