Socio-Economic Review aims to encourage work on the relationship between society, economy, institutions and markets, moral commitments and the rational pursuit of self-interest. The journal seeks articles that focus on economic action in its social and historical context. It seeks to build a bridge among the social sciences to increase their relevance to such issues as the evolution of welfare, the formation of economic policy, the constitution of supranational bodies and organizations, and similar multi-faceted issues. The journal is open to work employing critical and heterodox, as well as mainstream, approaches to economics and political economy. In broad disciplinary terms, papers will be drawn from economics, political science, sociology, and the management and policy sciences. The journal encourages papers that seek to recombine disciplinary domains in response to practically relevant issues, while at the same time encouraging the development of new theory. More concretely, Socio-Economic Review welcomes papers on such issues as: the contribution of good governance to the performance of the economy, the limits of rational self-interest, the role of social institutions in structuring the economy and its development, the relations between markets and democracy, the socio-economics of regional economic and political integration, the design of the core institutions of a modern economy in post-communist societies, economic coordination, steering and reform, the way institutions change in response to state policy and corporate strategy and structure, the environmental, societal and personal risks and costs of narrowly pursuing economic well-being, the changing nature of work, human resources, and business management, cultural, cognitive, ideological and theoretical aspects of economics and economies, the multi-level embeddedness of economic phenomena from local networks of firms and civil associations to an emerging global system of political economic relationships.
