The politics of economics is a research network exploring how economics impacts the world. The seminar series brings different perspectives together to discuss tensions and contestations of economic knowledge in the context of policy, expertise and political movements.

We will host one-hour webinars consisting of a conversation with one of our moderators followed by questions from our online audience.

This is not about presenting research results but rather sharing our latest thoughts and asking scholars whose expertise we trust to help us think through these strange times.
