EPS at The Festival for New Economic Thinking

Edinburgh, Scotland  
October 19 - 20, 2017

The Festival for New Economic Thinking believes that society faces mounting challenges, yet our dominant economic models are out of touch. Around the world, new ideas, approaches, and concepts are being developed by disparate communities of thoughtful people.  The festival is designed to connect organizations and individuals committed to bringing forward the economic
thought of tomorrow.

EPS will be exploring the economic impacts of security policies, and the security impacts of economic policies with an informational stall and a panel discussion.  War and violent conflict disrupt the social and economic fabric of societies and interfere with the well-being of individuals; and economic policies and institutions can either prevent or mitigate violence or can contribute to it. We as professional economists believe that our discipline has a positive contribution to make to peace and human welfare. 

Panel Discussion
Peace Economics: How Economics Can Contribute to Peace
Chaired by Thea Harvey-Barratt, Economists for Peace & Security
