Rethinking Economics Switzerland
The Swiss national network of Rethinking Economics
We are looking for a new national coordinator
Are you interested in a critical approach to economics? in learning about new economic theories? in meeting professors and students who share a pluralistic approach? Then apply to this interesting position !
Rethinking Economics Switzerland is a student national network based in Switzerland. At the moment, it counts three different branches: Lugano, Geneva and Zurich. We are part of the international network Rethinking Economics, which was born in 2012 in the UK. Nowadays, Rethinking Economics has many other student groups around the world that share the same mission: reforming the economics curriculum in universities and "democratising" the discipline among the society.
We promote interdisciplinarity and pluralism in economics and its related subjects, fighting especially against the dogmatism within the teaching of the discipline at the tertiary education level. In particular, our group focuses on facing these issues among the economics departments of the Swiss universities. Moreover, we aim to encourage the critique of mainstream economic theory by analysing its hiatuses, contradictions, effects and consequences. We also want to bridge the gap between theory and practice in Economics, “democratising” economic ideas and concepts by spreading them out to a broad audience.
