The 22nd Edition of the Warwick Economics Summit will be held online!
The conference will be an interactive three-day experience from the 10th-12th of February 2023.

We believe this decision allows us to ensure the safety of our delegates, speakers, sponsors and partners, whilst maintaining the unique opportunity the summit provides to students around the world.
Our goal remains the same, to create an environment where students and current world leaders can come together to discuss multidisciplinary and intergenerational topics that address the global issues we face today.
We are excited by the opportunity the transition to a virtual conference presents, as it allows us to reach a wider audience of students from universities across the world to join and to build on the diverse line-ups of the past.

Bishnodat Persaud
Lecture Series 

An illustrious economist whose ideas were often ahead of his time, Prof. Persaud emphasised the need to think beyond the conventionally accepted, whether when pondering the global problems or at dinner table discussions with his three children Rajendra, Avinash and Sharda.  As the Warwick Economics Summit 2022 strives to encourage discussion and debate among students across the world, we are proud to host the inaugural Professor Bishnodat Persaud Memorial Lecture Series in honour of a man whose career has helped shape economic thought and sparked fresh ideas about international development and the environment. 

The Warwick Economics Summit thanks the Persaud family for their generous contribution towards making WES2022 a conference that is more accessible to students around the world.
