The Departments of Economics at the University of Warwick and the Department of Economics at the University of St Andrews are organising the annual workshop of the Women in Political Economics Network.Link opens in a new window

Economics is male-dominated, especially in academia. Research shows that female academics face several barriers impacting their careers. The aim of the workshop is to promote women-led research and targets female scholars in the sub-field of political economics. The aim is to maximise opportunities for networking and collaboration among female researchers with similar interests.

Our workshop includes paper presentations, a poster session and some mentoring activities for junior colleagues and PhD students, and sessions where participants can share and discuss gender-related issues encountered in their careers.

We will cover three nights of accommodation (26-27-28 May). For PhD students we will cover travel expenses as well.
