The Global Association of Economics Education of the United Kingdom (GAEE UK), since its inception last year, has expanded its chapter network to over 28 colleges in the country. With over four hundred members, this impressive achievement despite the pandemic makes GAEE UK the third-largest regional chapter of the Global Association of Economics Education.

The British chapter has received support from Discover Economics, an initiative by the Royal Economic Society to “broaden the appeal of economics to potential students,” especially those from under-represented groups. GAEE UK has recently hosted the renowned British economist Vicky Pryce, former Joint Head of the United Kingdom’s Government Economic Service, in an exclusive interview to discuss gender equality and economic recovery. It also hosted Dr. John Fender—Professor of Macroeconomics at the University of Birmingham—on a webinar yesterday titled “What is the Role of Policy?”

Updated (March 8, 2021): The UK chapters have since expanded to 32 colleges in the UK, including Abingdon School, Bradfield College, Brighton College, Canford School, Charterhouse School, Cheltenham Ladies’ College, Clifton College, Charterhouse School, The Emmbrook School, Eton College, Farnborough Sixth Form College, Garth Hill College, Godolphin School, Godolphin & Latymer School, Harrow School, KE Sixth High School for Girls, King Edward’s VI School, Mander Portman Woodward, King’s College Taunton, Marlborough College, Lady Eleanor Holles, Radley College, Reigate Grammar School, St Pauls School, Sherborne School, St Swithun’s School, St Edwards School, Stowe School, Westminster School, Wetherby Senior, Winchester College, Woking College.
