PCPE—Prague Conference on Political Economy

PCPE 2014, April 4-6 with keynote speeches by professor Michael Munger of Duke University and professor Martin Ricketts of The University of Buckingham









We are inviting you to participate in the 10th annual  Prague Conference on Political Economy (PCPE). PCPE is an international and interdisciplinary gathering of scholars and supporters (not only) of the Austrian School of Economics and political economy of freedom. During two days of the conference (Friday afternoon and Satuday), participants will have an opportunity to participate in lectures and debates focusing on economics, political science, history, philosophy and other humanities, and to discuss these issues with leading theorists in the field, both from Europe and overseas.

PCPE 2014 is organized my CEVRO Institute [school of legal and social studies] in partnership with Liberalni Institut,  The Faculty of Social and Economic Studies, J. E. Purkyne University,  European Students for Liberty and the media partner Parlamentni listy.

Annual Lectures:

Franz Cuhel Memorial Lecture delivered by Michael Munger (Duke University)


Saturday, April 5 2014

Special Plenary Session with Jan Winiecki (Narodowy Bank Polski)


See schedule for details.

This conference is an attempt to resurrect the tradition of Austrian economics- and liberty-oriented thinking that thrived in central Europe at the beginning of the 20th century, but sadly disappeared thereafter. By establishing an annual forum for scholars and students to meet and exchange ideas we hope to build a solid institutional basis for the advancement of the liberty-oriented research program.

The Conference takes place in the quaint and newly reconstructed building of the CEVRO Institute [school of legal and social studies] in the heart of Prague, the capital of Czech Republic.

As the president of the conference, I believe that the conference will keep up the good spirit of previous years. We will do our best to succeed in making the 2014 conference at least as stimulating and useful as the past ones. We also believe that your participation will make the conference an even greater success.

We hope you will join us!
prof. Josef Sima, Ph.D.president of the CEVRO Institute (josef.sima@vsci.cz)
