In the framework of its project “For Socially Just Development in the MENA-Region” Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung (FES) invites researchers, activists and professionals to apply for the Summer School “Social (in)justice in the MENA Region: Debunking the myth of neoliberal economic policies” from 7 to 11 August 2018 in Tunis, Tunisia.
The Summer School aims to provide a forum for young scholars from different disciplines who have a profound interest in studying social justice from the perspective of economic policies. During the Summer School, the effects of existing economic and development policies based on neoliberalism will be discussed and compared to alternative development models and heterodox economic policies.
