The Cambridge Political Economy Society, founded in the 1970s, aims to advance the education of the public in political economy and related matters, and to promote research in matters pertaining to political economy and to publish the useful results of such research. To this end the Society publishes the Cambridge Journal of Economics, the Cambridge Journal of Regions, Economy and Society and Contributions to Political Economy.
In 1985 the Society established a charitable Trust which works to further these aims by providing funding for a variety of projects. More information about the Trust and the types of funding it provides is available here.
It is with great sadness that the Cambridge Political Economy Society announces the death of Frank Wilkinson on 24 March 2021. Frank was a founding member of the Cambridge Journal of Economics and the Cambridge Political Economy Society, and played a major part in their ongoing success. He will be greatly missed by his Colleagues.
The Journal intends to mark Franks’ life and contributions in a future special issue. Further details about his work and achievements can be found on the websites of Girton College and the Institute of Employment Rights.
