Statement on Political Layoffs in Academia

The Association for Heterodox Economics (AHE) stands in strong solidarity with colleagues facing redundancies due to neoliberal restructuring during this pandemic. One particularly horrifying example of this, is what is going on at Leicester University, where 145 colleagues are currently under threat of redundancy by the university management. The university’s poorly defined and justified proposal to “disinvest” from Critical Management Studies and Political Economy is a blatant attack on academic freedom, a disservice to the university’s international reputation in these fields, and an offense to their current and future students. 

For decades have our colleagues at Leicester University been dedicated to collegiality, interdisciplinarity, pluralism and the highest scholarly standards in their fields; principles for which they have earned far-reaching respect and acknowledgement in the intellectual community, and which the AHE strongly endorses.
