The Union for Radical Political Economics (URPE) was founded in 1968
by graduate students and faculty from the University of Michigan, Harvard
University, and Radcliffe College. The organization promotes an
interdisciplinary approach to political economics that considers political
science, sociology, and social psychology. URPE's annual activities include a
winter meeting as part of the Allied Social Science Association (ASSA) and a
summer conference. URPE publishes a quarterly journal, "Review of Radical
Political Economics" (RRPE), and a bi-monthly newsletter.
