About Us

What is CPPE?

The Centre for Philosophy and Political Economy (CPPE) provides a platform for interrogation and investigation of the ontological underpinnings and epistemological strategies emerging from diverse academic fields in business and management studies, with a commitment to social justice. Members and affiliates are committed to looking at social struggle in the everyday lives of workers and organisers, in workplaces and spaces, in the public sphere and the commons, where lines of thinking in management and organisation, employment and future of work studies, feminism and social reproduction, fuelling sociological and business studies insights, are transversal to debates.

CPPE sits within the University of Leicester School of Business and looks at the structures within which business, economics, finance, and institutions sit, from a consciously and explicitly transdisciplinary perspective. Researchers look at the experiences and actions of groups and individuals within this remit. Please get in touch if you have any queries or would like to get involved with upcoming activities with Phoebe V Moore pm358@leicester.ac.uk.
