A Brief About Us
Nigerian scholars in Economics and allied Social Studies formed the Nigerian Economic Society (NES) in 1957 as a non-profit, professional organization. It was formally established with the adoption of its constitution on 4th January 1958. 

The object of the Society is primarily to encourage the study and discussion, by members and the interested public in Nigeria and abroad, of economic and social problems facing Nigeria. 

Over the years, the Society has pursued its noble ideals by: 

  1. Holding Annual Conference, Annual General Meetings and seminars on the economy and society, with opinions, views and recommendations regularly offered.
  2. Publishing The Nigerian Journal of Economic and Social Studies (NJESS), books, proceedings, and monographs.
  3. Contributing to the economic and social policy formulation in the country through open and confidential memoranda to the government.
