The Review of Evolutionary Political Economy (REPE)

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

EAEPE’s new international journal The Review of Evolutionary Political Economy (REPE) advances academic excellence in evolutionary political economy. We invite high-quality conceptual and review articles and cutting-edge methodological and empirical studies from evolutionary and international political economy, and heterodox, computational and complexity economics. Papers should embrace the heterogeneity of economic agents and interactions as complexified by power, institutions and environmental inputs. Papers might explore the origins and impact of economic 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. Articles that advance interdisciplinary analyses of complex systems, embrace social, natural, behavioural 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.
