The workshop „The development of critical economic thinking in a global cultural paradigm

is jointly organized by West University of Timisoara Foundation The Journal of Heterodox Economics

and ECREB (East-European Center for Research in Economics and Business)


The present period of structural, functional and institutional instability has generated a series of innovative approaches (under the form of alternative public policies susceptible to offer sustainable solutions to the economic crises and to enhance the economic and human sustainable development). Also, a series of doctrines have been reevaluated, promoting alternative approaches to understanding the economy as a socio-cultural process. Unfortunately, in the practice of teaching and research, these new approaches are not very well known or debated.

The workshop aims to offer, in a holistic and synergic vision, the framework for stimulating students’ and researchers’ ideas in respect to the contemporary economic processes. It provides the possibility of multidisciplinary, critic and innovative debate of these processes.

The workshop is meant to become the center of an international network, launching a debate forum in the context of heterodox economics, of the alternative approaches in respect to what is considered to be the mainstream of economic theory.

Who can participate?

We invite master and PhD students as well as young researchers to submit working papers, full articles or discussion papers.
