Event description

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. The summit exists to bring together world-leading and inspiring speakers with a passionate international student delegation.

Over the last two decades, the Warwick Economics Summit has had the pleasure of hosting distinguished speakers from across the world to provide a forum that encourages the exchange of stimulating and challenging ideas from people of diverse backgrounds.

As a student-led, not-for-profit conference, the summit’s commitments lay in curating a world-class centre of discussion where delegates can challenge, and be challenged on internationally relevant topics. Through sparking conversations, it will explore the perspectives that have had a significant impact on our world while inspiring thought on the ideas that will affect our future.
