Economic Development and International Institutions

Development economics has been a long-standing research strength of the department, with innovative work ranging from rural poverty and enterprise technology, through macroeconomic policy and aid strategy, to international trade and foreign investment. This work is characterised by an emphasis on the testing of analytical models on primary empirical data.

In recent years, a new focus on the international economic institutions has emerged, addressing issues of financial governance, international taxation and environmental regulation.

The research groups working on this theme are the International Growth Centre (IGC), jointly with the Oxford Department of Economics and London School of Economics; and the Technology and Management Centre for Development (TMCD). There are also a number of senior scholars in the department with individual research projects in this field.
