IEL Collective Working Groups

The IEL Collective plan to run a number of Working Groups focused on specific interest areas. If you have an idea for an interest group and can coordinate one, please contact us at ielcollective at warwick dot ac dot uk

Law & Finance Working Group

The Law & Finance Working Group promotes advanced understanding, policy intervention and teaching of economics, finance and the law. A crucial objective of the Group is to support the translation of critical research in the field to the general public, with a particular focus in influencing progressive policy-making either at national, regional or international levels. The Group is building a collective database of syllabi in various topics of Law & Finance from heterodox, third-world, postcolonial, feminist, and other critical approaches.
