Our research is informed by engagement with practitioners, and characterised by its dissemination of results to a diverse non-academic audience.
The School is committed to and strongly encourages activities related to ‘enterprise and engagement' throughout our six research clusters, with the aim of generating wider benefits from our researchers' work. We support our staff in achieving world leading and internationally excellent research, in generating substantial external funding and in undertaking research with high impact.
Research in the School of Economics is organised into five groups listed below.
The Behavioural Economics Group builds on its tradition of pioneering research in the rigourous foundations of behavioural and experimental economics to incorporate its insights into the design of modern policy and practice in the UK and internationally.
The Environment, Resources, and Conflict Group applies empirical, theoretical and experimental techniques to study some of today’s most pressing issues in environmental economics and conflict studies.
Members of the faculty are also part of inter-disciplinary research groups working across the university.
- The Migration Research Network was founded in November 2015 and is designed primarily to facilitate participatory action research in topics related to international migration.
