Membership is available to those wanting to participate in online forums and comment on articles.

Find out more by visiting VoxLACEA online and on Facebook – ‘€œLike‘€ them and receive regular updates. You can also follow VoxLACEA on Twitter (@voxlacea) where the latest materials are announced.

As VoxLACEA aims to raise the level of policy debate by providing a platform for researchers to present policy implications of their work and researchers to learn about policy debates in the region, audience participation and feedback is vital, and encouraged. The portal, as an independent economic discussion forum enriched by individual contributions, institutional reports and self-produced data, welcomes economists of all nationalities, theoretical orientations and policy perspectives.

Reach out to VoxLACEA at any step of the way. You may submit all contributions, questions and/or comments to, or through their social media accounts.
