Groupe d'Étude en Économie Politique (GEEP)/ Political Economy Working Group


Who we are:

The Political Economy Working Group started in 2011 as a FQRSC-financed Research Team, composed of Arianna Degan (Université du Québec à Montréal), Arnaud Dellis (Université Laval), Ming Li (Concordia University), and Nicolas Sahuguet (HEC Montréal. The group has organized a series of seminars and conference during the period 2011-2013.

Although no longer funded as a FQRSC-Team, the group continues to organize small workshops in Political Economy. The objective is to have a Study Group gathering all people interested in Political Economy in the area who meet regularly to favor scholarly interactions and research.
