EHESS: The Organizer of the Congress

To organize the WEHC 2022, the IEHA selected the Paris bid of the EHESS, which received the full support of the Association Française d’Histoire Économique (AFHE). EHESS has embraced the Congress’s goal to promote constructive dialogue among economists, economic historians, and other social scientists, in the tradition of the
Annales school and the scholarship of Fernand Braudel. EHESS has fostered collaborations to stimulate research in economic history with universities in Paris, across France and internationally. It also co-founded the Paris school of economics (PSE) and the Toulouse school of economics (TSE). Thus, with the 2022 WEHC, the EHESS aims at highlighting research in both economic history and social sciences as they are being carried out in France.
