Our Story

Turning interests into action.

Our organisation was born out of the idea that students should have a common place to discuss the complex political challenges of our time with each other. An organisation that connected students from all faculties and offered them a common place to develop knowledge and insights on the fundamental topic of Political Economy, as well as a diverse community of motivated students, was missing. That is why PES Maastricht was founded in January 2022.​


In our first semester, we saw over 650 people visit our events and we welcomed 40 students from five faculties and 21 nationalities into our committees. In our second semester, we continued on our strong start as we organized 11 events in 13 weeks for another 650 students, wrote 2 research papers as well as a multitude of articles by the MJPE, and held some guest lectures. 


Now, while we get the best out of students - and they get the best out of us - we continue to move forward.​ We continue to push our limits and goals; through presenting new topics for discussions, welcoming influential and knowledgeable speakers and expanding our reach toghether with our actively involved students.

Our Organisational Structure

Focused on Empowering our Members.

We are focused on enabling our committee members to make the most out of their time studying, in Maastricht and at PES. That is why we have opted for an organisational structure which allows each committee to operate with a high degree of autonomy and efficiency.
