The International Network for Economic Method, in collaboration with TINT – Centre for Philosophy of Social Science, University of Helsinki, is delighted to announce that the 14th biannual conference will take place in Helsinki, 19-21 August, 2019. We welcome proposals for contributed papers and symposia in all areas of the philosophy and methodology of economics. We particularly encourage submissions that combine philosophy and methodology of economics with other perspectives on studying economics offered, for instance, by history and sociology of economics, ethics, political philosophy, as well as by feminist approaches and social ontology.  

Keynote speakers:  

Beatrice Cherrier (CNRS & THEMA, University of Cergy Pontoise)

Tiago Mata (University College London)
