We would like to invite you to participate in the network of International Development Economics Associates (IDEAs). IDEAs, established in September 2001, is a pluralist network of progressive economists across the world. It seeks to undertake and promote a range of activities including research, teaching, dissemination and application of critical economic analyses of economic policy and development. The organisation is based in the South and led by economists based in several developing countries, but membership of the network is open to all those committed to developing and using alternative non-orthodox tools of economic analysis appropriate for meeting development challenges.

If you are willing to participate in the network and its activities, please fill in the membership form below. Signing up as a network member will also automatically enable you to receive our regular e-mail newsletter updating you on the new additions to the website.

We welcome your feedback, comments and suggestions on the statement and our objectives and activities. We remain committed to an inclusive consultative process, although practical considerations – including resource and other constraints – will probably shape what we can and will do. Your continued advice, support and participation will be crucial to the success of our endeavours.
