The Association for Social Economics establishes a complimentary membership structure for individuals in lower income countries

Association for Social Economics April 12, 2022

Based on the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development’s (OECD) Development Assistance Committee (DAC) List of Official Development Assistance (ODA) Recipients, members from least developed countries, low income countries, lower middle income countries and territories, and upper middle income countries and territories are able to receive a free, one-year membership with renewal!

The ASE Executive Council (EC) approved this update in December 2021 for a two-year trial period with the possibility of extension upon review of the program. Eligible members will thus receive a complimentary membership for at least two years, but will need to renew their respective membership at the end of the first year into the second year. Closer to the end of 2023, the EC will review the program and make a decision about its continuance.year.

We hope this program provides some relief from the potential financial resource hurdle associated with joining the ASE. To get started, visit the membership page of the ASE website:
