Writing for SEEKonomics

 

The primary goal of SEEKonomics is to promote and debate alternative approaches to economics. We want to encourage the democratisation of economics, breaking out from the confines of the neo-classical thinking that largely rejects social and ecological principles. To do this it is important to cover a wide range of topics and approaches and to promote as many different voices as we can. Therefore we want your contributions!

 

If you feel you have something original and important to add to the debates SEEKonomics engages with, then please send us your work and ideas. Whether it’s something you’ve already written, or you have a pitch to put forward, we strongly encourage you to get in touch.

Values and conduct

We are willing to accept any written pieces that engage with economics in a critical, fair and respectful fashion. As can be seen on the ABOUT page, SEEKonomics advocates the consideration of social and environmental justice in economics and your submission must also respect these values.

 

Furthermore, SEEKonomics must be a safe space for all. To this end we will not accept any prejudicial or discriminatory writing in relation to religion, race, sexuality, gender identity, disability, age, or any other aspect of a person’s identity. The comment and discourse on our website must be free from hateful language and personal attacks, and all our writers must contribute to making the discussion inclusive and self-reflective.
