Student Economic Review

The Student Economic Review is an economics periodical, edited and produced in its entirety by a committee comprising undergraduate students of Trinity College Dublin. It was established in 1987 by John Fingleton and relies largely on the support of the faculty of the Economics Department in Trinity.

The review has its origins in the 1950s in the Dublin University Business and Economics Society. It was initially a vehicle for more academic pursuits, however it lapsed. During the 1980s, interest in a student publication re-emerged. The review in its current form dates from 1987 and is an entirely independent student organisation.


Sections include: economic theory (and the scientific status of economics as a discipline), economic history, public policy (or particular aspects of public policy, including transport economics), the European economy and the economics of development. Sections are tailored each year to respond to the particular strengths of submissions.

Aside from the review itself, the review committee organises workshops on economics and other relevant topics each year, including the annual economic debates, which are organised in conjunction with either of the two major debating societies on campus (the College Historical Society or the University Philosophical Society) During these events, a team of Trinity students selected by the department competes against a team representing a foreign partnered institution. A notable Irish or international figure will generally chair the debate. Previous chairs include William Hague and Alan Dukes.
