Company

The Royal Economic Society is the pre-eminent economics association in the United Kingdom. Founded in 1890, we are a registered charity and received our Royal Charter in 1902. Our 4,000 members are located in over 70 countries, with approximately half of these in the UK. Thousands more engage with us every year via our group and institutional membership programmes and through our journals,  events and other activities.

Our history is rooted in academia and we continue to advance research through our peer-reviewed journals –The Economic Journal and The Econometrics Journal – our annual conference and our support for doctoral students. Through our Annual Public Lecture and other events, online materials and partnerships, we have worked to improve the public’s understanding of economics.

Via our Discover Economics campaign and schools outreach work, we have been active in helping create a more diverse pipeline of future economists and have sought to build stronger connections between academic and professional economists.  This inclusive approach is reflected in our membership, which is open to anyone with an interest in economics and shares our vision for economics to be understood, advanced and applied for the maximum benefit of society and the world around us.
