On behalf of Honorary Committee it is a great pleasure to formally and cordially invite you to
International Symposium on Economic Thought (ISET) which will be held by The Research Platform on Economic Thought (RePEcT). ISET is intended to be a forum for scholars to present and discuss ECONOMIC THOUGHT through the prism of socio-economic, socio-political and history. The Symposium aims to present economic research that highlights contemporary Economic Thought in line with its theory, history, sociology, philosophy, methodology, and politics. We hope that the presentations during the symposium will posititivly contribute to the ongoing debate and scholarship on the economic realities of our times. The Symposium is also aimed to perhaps influence economic policy making and academic pursuits as a broader objective . We would be honoured with your active participation in this symposium as a scholar.
With our best and sincere regards,
