About Us

The mission of the Economics in Context Initiative (ECI) is to advance the theory, teaching, and application of economics to serve the essential goals of humanity – goals that must include the fostering of equitable societies in sustainable ecological surroundings.

The ECI is a new institute housed at Boston University’s Global Development Policy (GDP) Center that builds on the work of the Global Development And Environment Institute (GDAE) at Tufts University. While the ECI essentially replaces GDAE’s Theory and Education program, GDAE remains an active institute at Tufts.
