About ACE


ACE aims to promote discussion and research on economics and related topics, from a distinctively Christian perspective.

Most ACE members are practicing economists, although others interested in its agenda are welcome.

Membership is open to all Christians, subscribing to the ancient creeds, who wish to study economic theory and its application, from within a specifically Christian worldview.


ACE holds an Annual Conference bringing together economists and theologians to present and discuss their research.

Its next meeting will be held in July 2018 in Sidney Sussex College, Cambridge. New members are welcome!


ACE publishes an annual collection of discussion papers by its members. 

ACE also provides limited research grants consistent with its aims
