Events and activities organised by and under IIPPE are diverse, ranging from research workshops to formal conferences. For the most part these are organised within or between individual Working Groups, although events such as the annual Historical Materialism conferences and international research workshops are occasions during which IIPPE scholars and researchers come together to share ideas, foster research and stimulate debate.

Financialisation working paper series
The IIPPE Financialisation Group is pleased to announce its Working Paper Series on political economy and heterodox research in finance. This working paper series aims at offering Ph.D students and young researchers the possibility to have their papers reviewed by two academics who are working in their field of research. Submission of work on all aspects of heterodoxy and finance is encouraged, with a special but not exclusive focus on developing and emerging countries. Upon submission, the paper will be assessed by two referees, one senior and one junior academic, according to the topic of research at hand. If the paper is accepted, it will be – after necessary revisions - published as IIPPE Financialisation working paper series. This process should give young researchers the chance to get feedback on their work in addition to their supervisor's and make their work available to a broader audience. Confirmed senior academics currently include: Ben Fine, Victoria Chick, Tom Marois, Alfredo Saad Filho and Jan Toporowski. This broad range of people should allow an efficient matching of the paper and the expertise of the selected referee.
