Association of European Economics Education


Newsletter 1 JANUARY 1999

All change at the AEEE

The AEEE had its beginnings in a biennial meeting of delegates from national associations, the first of which was in 1976. This was partly funded by the EU. In 1990 the AEEE was set up to broaden the range of people coming to the conference. Economia was the journal of the new association.

For a number of years the association flourished. Then membership fell and EU funding became first difficult and then, impossible, to obtain. Economia had to be discontinued.

Now the AEEE has become an umbrella organisation for the national associations of teachers of economics and business. There is no membership subscription, but there is a mailing list.

Who will organise the AEEE?

From 1990 until 1998, Steve Hurd was general secretary. He did an enormous amount of hard work and kept the association going. He has now resigned in order to have more time for his main interest, educational software. Everyone in the AEEE is deeply grateful to him for all that he has done.

Ernst Bizer takes over from Steve as General Secretary. Jean-Claude Have remains Chair. Dominic McQuillan replaces Henrik Adrian as Treasurer.

The Webmaster will be Orla Duedahl.

How will you be kept informed?

The AEEE will have a website. The url is to be: http://www.eo.gymfag.dk/aeee. This will provide general details about the AEEE, contact names and addresses, the latest newsletter, forthcoming events and the text of articles recently presented at AEEE events.

AEEE newsletters will be published twice a year and will be included in the journals of many national associations. In this way they will reach far beyond the AEEE mailing list.

Anyone who cannot access the newsletter either via the Internet or via national journals should write to their national representative who will be able to send you a copy.

The Swedish conference

The 80 AEEE members who met in August 1998 at Kungalv near Goteborg in Sweden enjoyed a rare treat. Participants came from all over Europe and also from Russia.

A number of very interesting papers were presented by speakers from eleven different countries. The conference provided a fine opportunity to share experiences with people from many different backgrounds. There was a visit to the Volvo factory and to an island off the nearby coast, Swedish musicians played for us and there was a rather curious encounter with some Vikings in the nearby woods. AEEE members are deeply grateful for the hard work done by Vivian Hollqvist and Hilde Bogaert and their large team of helpers.
