Economics Student Forum
The “Economics Students Forum” is an independent initiative of Israeli economic students, founded in 2007. We seek to stimulate the economics discourse at the universities, to expose students to economic issues relevant to Israeli society, and to give them a better understanding of the economic universe. We are motivated by the criticism heard in Israel and abroad, regarding the way economics is being taught, and we try on promoting a pluralist and inter-disciplinary teaching of economics in the universities.
As a major part of the “Economics Students Forum” in Haifa University we offer the students a non-academic course throughout the second semester. In this course we try to expose students to the significant role economics has on our lives, to expand the available methodologies, and challenge the current solutions being modelled and taught. The forum is supported by the “Social Economic Academy”, the Haifa Students Association and the Haifa Economics Department.
