Teaching Economics in a Europe in crisis

2014, Aix-en-Provence (France):
The 20th Conference builds upon Manchester (2010) and Koln (2012), where the themes also related to the prolonged international crisis. “Teaching Economics in a Europe in crisis” is the main thread of the conference in 2014, but the perspective is both distinct and complementary. In Manchester, it deals with "economy after the global crisis". In Koln the question was: "the economic crisis – catastrophe or opportunity?" This time, the question will be rather: "why has the crisis been prolonged?", and: "how has the crisis differed between and within societies?". The focus will be on the various manifestations of the crisis, its impact on both the economy and the society and the implications for different levels of education.

Economic crisis - Catastrophe or Opportunity?

2012, Cologne (Germany):
The term crisis, stemming from ancient Greek, means a division, a decisive moment, and a turning point. In the Chinese calligraphy, the character for crisis means danger and also chance or opportunity. In medicine, crisis may stand for the worst moment, just before recovery begins. So a crisis can be a catastrophe, a danger but also an opportunity for a new beginning; for learning, a change of mind and new ways of thinking. We will investigate these aspects from the viewpoint of European Economics Education.

Contemporary Challenges for economivs and business

2010, Manchester (United Kingdom):
Under the broad theme “Contemporary Challenges for Economics and Business Education” the conference seeks to draw together the latest thinking and developments on curricula, assessment, pedagogy and research. The ethos of our conferences is to promote discussion and the exchange of ideas and good practice through talks and interactive workshops. There will be a number of keynote lectures on “Economics After the Global Crisis”, and discussion of what and how we should be teaching about such important issues.


2008, The Heague (The Netherlands):
