            The Indian Political Economy Association is a Society registered under the Societies Registration Act.  A number of social scientists from many Universities, Research Institutes and Colleges, Journalists and Public-men, after a long process of deliberations, decided to set up this Association. The Association came into formal existence in October 1989.

            It was felt that there is a need for an organization which brings together people who are trying to understand the social processes in their organic unity without excessive influence of the individual discipline they are formally trained in. This is because in real life the issues and problems respect no such artificial boundaries as have come up partly for pedagogic reasons and partly under the impact of the forces governing non-material production.  Especially in a country like India which is facing such immense challenges, the social scientists can hope to respond to the challenges only through a comprehensive understanding of social processes and collective efforts.

            We are aware that there are a number of academic associations which are doing very useful work in their respective areas. However, it was felt that it is essential to rise above the narrow boundaries and attempt to evolve an integrated understanding in a historical context. Read More...


         The Association has been very active in bringing out publications relating to contemporary socio-economic issues. A very important activity of the Association has been publication of Alternative Economic Survey (AES) annually since 1992. The AES looks at the entire Indian economic structure policy wise and sector wise to present a critical appraisal from the people’s perspective.  The latest issue, 18th in the series, entitled “Neo-liberal Economic Policies: ‘Gods’ that failed”, was published in June 2013.  

         The Association has also published Conference Proceedings of the 12th, 13th, 14th, 15th, 16th and 17th annual IPEA conferences.  The Association has also brought out from time to time edited books on contemporary national and global issues.  Five volumes in Hindi on the lines of AES have also been published.Read More...
