The Birmingham Journal of Political Economy (BJPE) pays homage to several of the university’s and locales’ legacies. Namely, Birmingham as a center for pre-Keynesian political-economic thought, its place as the home to the United Kingdom’s first business school, and its current status as one of England’s most diverse cities.
The journal itself seeks to follow the multidisciplinary and pluralistic path set by leading journals such as the Cambridge Journal of Economics, New Political Economy, Governance, and Review of International Political Economy.
By way of its embrace of pluralism, BJPE also seeks to contribute towards breaking-down remaining ideological barriers between American, British, and continental approaches to social science research and thought.
Via its editorial board, BJPE seeks to foster diversity of thought and person.
