UK Undergraduate PPE Conference is a global non-profit undergraduate conference. It welcomes submissions of student research from all areas of the humanities and social sciences—with a specific focus on issues pertaining to politics, economics, and philosophy. 

The overarching aim of this conference is to give students a platform where they are able to showcase their original research in different fields of the humanities and social sciences, to foster dialogue and critical thinking, and thereby promote research in humanities and social science more generally. By inviting established researchers in different fields as keynote speakers, we look to provide an opportunity for students to learn about the value and inner workings of academia, and grow their academic network.

Aside from free registration, all participating students may also get the chance to win the Best Paper Award, Best Presentation Award, or Young Researcher Award.
