Questions of law, power, and economy are at the heart of contemporary challenges to democracy, environment, social solidarity, and economic security. This workshop brings together scholars and students to develop a deeper understanding of the problems and solutions of current economic policy. Similar to previous APPEAL workshops, we aim to build an affirming, inspiring, and diverse academic community to advance scholarly exchange, learning, and collaboration. We encourage critical analysis of fundamental economic concepts and assumptions, along with interdisciplinary attention to the economy as a legal, political and social system. A particular goal of this workshop will be to provide opportunities for students and emerging scholars to develop and share their work, and to continue to participate in future related events and institution-building activities.
