Theoretical background and empirical context of Research Area [K]

Feminist political economy (FPE) is a dynamic and evolving field of intellectual inquiry that challenges traditional political economy. It draws on and builds connections between key ideas from feminist economics, institutional economics, and economic sociology to ask how political economies can provision human needs and well-being. As such, it demands the reconceptualization of the scope, methodologies, and identities that are integral to creating a more intersectional, inclusive, and nuanced study of political economy at all levels – state, formal institutions, households, and individuals.  In calling for specific and rigorous analyses of gender and social identity in political economy -and one that utilizes an intersectional feminist lens - we hope to lay the groundwork for an evolutionary political economy that is equal to the task of contemporary challenges.

Past sessions at the annual EAEPE conference have been organized on feminist methodologies, gender and evolutionary economics, gender in development economics, and gendered institutions in labour markets. We are open to any other themes that would contribute to building a strong discourse for gender and social identity within political economy, economics, and related fields.
