The Review of Evolutionary Political Economy (REPE)

REPE is the international journal launched by the European Association for Evolutionary Political Economy

EAEPE’s international journal The Review of Evolutionary Political Economy (REPE) advances academic excellence in evolutionary political economy broadly conceived. We invite high-quality conceptual and review articles and cutting-edge methodological and empirical studies from evolutionary and international political economy, institutionalist, heterodox, computational and complexity economics and economic sociology. Papers should embrace the heterogeneity of economic agents and interactions as complexified by power, institutions and environmental inputs. Papers might explore the social, political and economic impacts and origins and impact of crises, inequality and unemployment, the changing role of finance and financial instability, the digital transformation, and the socio-economic facets of environmental degradation and climate change, the evolution of welfare states and economic regimes. Articles that advance interdisciplinary analyses of complex systems, embrace social, natural, behavioural, organizational and computer sciences or draw on humanities and cultural theories are welcome. REPE’s special issues may cut across conventional themes and disciplines and relate evolutionary political economy to real-world issues. Ideas and proposals from guest-editors are invited.
