Aberdeen Political Economy Group (APEG)

About Us

APEG's aim is to create a pluralistic, inter­-disciplinary forum that actively promotes the exchange of ideas, resources and materials related to contemporary socio-political and economic issues.

We are convinced that scholarship must always be informed by a variety of perspectives, insights, and academic schools of thought. In this spirit, we host talks, panel debates, workshops, and other events for students and members of the general public. This year we will also organise our second international academic conference: 

Shifting Paradigms 2018 

Join us for our international conference on your future: 

16 - 18 November 2018, University of Aberdeen

The United Nations projects that an additional 10.5 billion people will inhabit planet Earth in fifty years time. What will the future bring? How will we be dealing with a growing population, mass migration and climate change? Will our technological advancements provide solutions? Will cryptocurrencies redistribute wealth? Are we experiencing the ‘silent rise of the female driven economy’? How will we deal with growing global inequality?

Shifting Paradigms is a conference that highlights current challenges and pluralistic approaches in economics. We promise elaborate speakers, brilliant ideas, futurist visions and a lot of fun!


For more information about the competition and any other aspect of our conference please consult our website https://www.shiftingparadigms2018.com/ or contact us here.
