Minorities in Economics
The EEA Standing Committee on Minorities in Economics, known as MinE, was created by the Council of the EEA in 2021. The Committee held their inaugural session during EEA-ESEM 2021.
MinE's objective is to support less-represented groups in the economics profession, including, but not limited to, ethnic minorities in Europe , LGBTQ+, and people with disabilities. Our goal is to facilitate and strengthen networking opportunities for disadvantaged individuals, to provide a platform for exchange and sharing of resources, and to spotlight research on minorities. All initiatives of MinE appear on this dedicated web section.

This Award is given to the best paper presented in the annual EEA congresses whose focus is on the study of LGBTQ+, Race-Ethnicity-Religion and/or Disabilities .
