(Registered Charity No. 291310)
The CPES Trust was established in 1985 by the Cambridge Political Economy Society, which produces the Cambridge Journal of Economics, Contributions to Political Economy, and the Cambridge Journal of Regions, Economy and Society. Its stated aims are (1) to advance the education of the public in political economy and related matters, and (2) to promote research in matters pertaining to political economy and to publish the useful results of such research. The Trustees interpret research in political economy to include work of a theoretical, applied, interdisciplinary, history of thought or methodological nature, having a strong emphasis on realistic analysis, the development of critical perspectives, the provision and use of empirical evidence, and the construction of policy.
