Max Planck Summer School for Women in Political Economy
- Start: Sep 11, 2023
- End: Sep 14, 2023
- Location: Cologne
The Summer School will address the continued underrepresentation of women in the field of Comparative and International Political Economy. It is intended to be an inclusive event and explicitly welcomes women, non-binary people, and all people of marginalized genders.
The problem of underrepresentation exists at all levels of the discipline, from doctoral students to professors, but mostly becomes acute at the postdoctoral level, since many qualified and talented women who have earned a PhD in Political Economy or a related discipline leave academia and choose not to pursue an academic career. Often they lack both role models and a network in the discipline.
