Aberdeen Political Economy Group

Who are we?

Shifting Paradigms, now in its third year, is organized by Aberdeen Political Economy Group (APEG). 

The Aberdeen Political Economy Group (APEG) is a student society affiliated with the University of Aberdeen.


Our aim is to create a pluralistic, inter­-disciplinary forum that actively promotes the exchange of ideas, resources and materials related to contemporary socio-political and economic issues.


We are convinced that scholarship must always be informed by a variety of perspectives, insights and academic schools of thought. In this spirit, we host talks, panel debates, workshops, and an annual conference for students and members of the general public.
