Symposium on Trade and Indigenous Nations

Globalization is about the world becoming smaller and different peoples, cultures, and
economic systems coming into increasingly frequent contact. These interactions can be
peaceful and mutually beneficial, but they can also be coercive and exploitive. While much of
the literature on the economics of globalization focuses on the twentieth century, a smaller but
important literature considers the long period of globalization associated with European
conquest and colonization in Africa, the Americas, Oceania, and elsewhere. This episode of
globalization led to massive and frequently traumatic changes in the economic, political, and
demographic structure of Indigenous peoples and nations.

We seek to publish a research symposium with articles that address broad themes in the rapidly
emerging literature on the effects of the European colonization on Indigenous peoples and
nations. The issue will be of special interest to the readers of the Canadian Journal of
Economics and to scholars of international trade, as well as the literature on Indigenous
economies, both historical and contemporary. We are particularly interested in research that
emphasizes trade or that possesses some international or spatial aspect. The word
international should be taken broadly to indicate interactions between Indigenous nations and
colonizing nations or amongst Indigenous nations.

The submission deadline is May 1st, 2024. More details here


The Canadian Journal of Economics endorses DCAS, the Data and Code Availability Standard [v1.0], and its data and code availability policy is compatible with DCAS.

Aims and Scope 

The Canadian Journal of Economics (CJE) is a general interest journal that welcomes submissions in all fields. It receives around 300 submissions per year and publishes around 50 of these papers. In 2020, the median and mean time to a first decision were 74 and 81 days.

The CJE seeks to maintain and enhance its position as a major internationally recognized general interest journal and is very receptive to high quality papers on any topic and from any source. In addition, as the Journal of the Canadian Economics Association, the CJE is very interested in high quality empirical papers about the Canadian economy or about Canadian economic issues.

The Journal has existed in its current form since 1968, when it was created by the subdivision of the Canadian Journal of Economics and Political Science (CJEPS) into two parts. The CJE and its forerunner, the CJEPS, have published many important papers in economics including, for example, Paul Samuelson's classic 1939 paper on the gains from trade. International trade remains an important field for the Journal, as does labour economics and open-economy macroeconomics. However, this pattern reflects submissions rather than editorial policy, and we encourage researchers in all fields to seriously consider the CJE as an alternative to the leading field journals and as a strong contender among the general interest journals.

The CJE is interested in publishing papers in all areas of economics, with the exception of very narrow papers addressed to small specialist audiences. The Journal welcomes both theoretical and empirical papers. Most published papers will make use of formal economic models or formal econometrics (or both). However, the Journal will also consider other types of papers (case studies, descriptive essays, construction and reporting of interesting data, etc.) provided they are of extremely high quality. The Journal focuses primarily on original research, but review articles will also be considered.

The CJE is indexed by the Journal of Economic Literature, the Social Science Citation Index, and other standard guides to academic literature. Replication data and codes for articles published in this journal are deposited in the CJE Dataverse on Borealis, the Canadian Dataverse Repository.
