Eli F. heckscher lectures

The Heckscher Lectures are held each year to honour the memory of Eli F. Heckscher´s (1879-1952). Among other things, Heckscher was the founder of economic history in Sweden. The lectures bring world known scholars to SSE, such as Geoffrey Jones and Nobel Laureate Olivier E. Williamson. Since 2009, the lectures are organized in cooperation with the Swedish research institute Ratio.

The tradition started in 2003 when a conference was organized in memory of Heckscher. The papers were published in a conference volume: Findlay, Henriksson, Lindgren and Lundahl (eds, 2006), Eli Heckscher, International Trade and Economic History. Cambridge, Mass: MIT Press.
