Call for Papers

Building upon the success of the inaugural Rethinking Economic Theory workshop held in Nafplio, Greece, in early summer of 2023, we are delighted to announce the second iteration of this exciting event. We invite scholars and enthusiasts from all over the world to join us in Athens, Greece, from December 13-15, 2024, for an invigorating exploration of alternative and innovative approaches to economic theory.

The field of economic theory is currently facing significant challenges, from the need to address critical issues like climate change and inequality to incorporating insights from other disciplines like psychology and sociology.
