On March 28, 2017, GDAE will award its 2017 Leontief Prize for Advancing the Frontiers of Economic Thought to James Boyce and Joan Martinez-Alier. This year's award recognizes these researchers for their ground-breaking theoretical and applied work that has effectively integrated ecological, developmental, and justice-oriented approaches into the field of economics.
As part of the ceremony, awardees will lecture on the theme "Economics, Equity, and the Environment." A reception will follow the ceremony. This event is free and open to the public.
The precise time of the event will be announced by December 2016.
