RES Annual Public Lecture
Established in 2001, our Annual Public Lecture provides an opportunity for school students to watch internationally-renowned economists present their research. Principally aimed at sixth form students, the APL has become an established part of the senior school calendar.
The 2022 APL will take place on 8 June in Reading and 14 June in Glasgow. Further details are to be confirmed.
This year's lecture was chaired by Dame Carol Propper and delivered by Prof. Diane Coyle CBE, Bennett Professor of Public Policy at the University of Cambridge and a Fellow of the Academy of Social Sciences. A recording of the 2021 APL is now available.
Engaging Students in Economics
Discover Economics is a campaign led by the Royal Economic Society which aims to broaden the appeal of economics to potential students, change their perceptions of economics and economists and attract more students from under-represented groups (women, state school/further education college students and ethnic minorities).
