The 3rd IRNEP conference will take place at the University of York on the 23rd-24th of September 2019. The aim of the conference is to promote a dialogue between the disciplines of Economics and Philosophy, in order to provoke alternative points of view and interesting discussions. Attendees, who are PhD and early career researchers from throughout the UK, will have the opportunity to present their research. One philosopher and one economist will present on a related topic, followed by an open discussion of both papers. This will provide an opportunity for constructive criticism from researchers from another discipline as well as your own.

An hour will be devoted to each topic giving ample time for debate. The presentations should be accessible to researchers from either discipline. A prize will be given to the philosopher whose presentation is most accessible to the economists and a prize for the economist whose presentation is most accessible to the philosophers.

A poster session will run in addition to the presentations to allow more researchers to disseminate their work to a wider audience, on a more personal level.

There will be four distinguished guest speakers who will give keynote presentations. We have Hilary Greaves, Richard CooksonChristian Piller and John Broome confirmed as our guest speakers.

Our previous two conferences were held at the University of York, in 2016, and the University of Reading, in 2015.
