INEM 2023


The International Network for Economic Method (INEM), in collaboration with the Department of Economics of Ca’ Foscari University of Venice, is delighted to announce that the 16th biennial conference will take place in Venice, Economic Campus San Giobbe, May 24–26, 2023.

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.
