Who are we?
The Warwick Economics Summit is an entirely student-run international forum where talented university students listen to some of the world’s most revered and inspirational speakers. The next edition will run from 5th of February - 7th of February 2021.
The summit’s focus goes far beyond the field of economics, encompassing the broader spheres of the social sciences, including development, politics, journalism, and international relations. It is this wide scope and diversity that sets the Summit apart from other events, ensuring that it remains relevant and in tune with today’s wider issues.
The Summit has welcomed distinguished speakers such as:
Kevin Rudd, former Prime Minister of Australia
Five Nobel Laureates in Economics: including Prof. John F. Nash Jr and Prof. George Akerlof
