Friends of Rethinking Economics Switzerland
Friends of Rethinking Economics Switzerland (FoRES) is a network of people who support the organization Rethinking Economics Switzerland (RE-S).
FoRES aims to bring people together:
- who share our vision for more pluralism in economics education and research,
- who are interested in rethinking the economics curriculum, and
- who are eager to discuss and explore pluralist and interdisciplinary approaches to economics.
We are a platform to discuss and meet like-minded people by organizing conferences and workshops, but also various leisure activities such as gatherings or hikes.
