The GAEE Journal for Aspiring Economists (GJAE) is the flagship publication of the Global Association of Economics Education (GAEE), aiming at providing a platform for high-level economics discourse among students in developing countries and marginalized communities through our free-to-publish open-access model.
A platform for aspiring economists

Continuing this tradition of empowering students through academia, the GAEE Journal for Aspiring Economists (GJAE) has been launched as a peer-review journal aiming at creating a platform for high-level discourse among students interested in economics science.
The Journal is supported by generous grants from GAEE’s partners and sponsors, including the United Nations Program on Sustainable Development.
