The 10-day Summer School will take place in late January 2020 in Johannesburg South Africa. This first-of-its-kind Summer School will cover key topics in both micro and macro feminist economics. The curriculum of the Summer School will require intensive planning and engagement with best practices. Approaches to feminist economics that challenge the prevailing dominance of Western forms of knowledge production will be sought. The Summer School will also facilitate discussions on how best the content covered may be applied in the future work of the participants.
