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.

FoRES is open to any person who supports the goals and vision of Rethinking Economics Switzerland. We especially encourage former members of RE groups to join us.
