Edinburgh Economics Conference

Tue 21 March 2017 10:00-17:00

Playfair Library


Edinburgh Economics Conference (EEC) is a student-led conference based at the University of Edinburgh. The full-day event will take place in Playfair Library, Old College on March 21, 2017.

The theme this year's conference is #BreakingBarriers. Last year the world saw stagnating globalism and thriving nationalism, creating barriers among the people. With this conference, we celebrate the conviction that these barriers should be broken. Through highlighting thought leaders and sharing ideas we hope to inspire a new generation of economists and politicians.
