Development and Underdevelopment in the History of Economic Thought


The postponed 24th ESHET conference will be held on 8-10 October 2021 and will be hosted by the University of National and World Economy in Sofia.


The conference will be a hybrid one in order to allow as many people as possible to participate in a way they prefer or find practicable. It will be possible to participate online or in-person.


We are particularly indebted to the local organising committee for their ongoing commitment.


Registration for either in-person or online participation is now open (via ‘Submission and Registration’ on the left). We encourage all to register as soon as possible.


We are looking forward to a stimulating, if somewhat different, conference.


Warm wishes

Richard van den Berg

ESHET President
