CPE engages in debates about current issues and challenges facing the field of economics through a team of leading researchers from the School of Economics, Finance and Law.
We examine the economics of equality and diversity in labour markets, health inequalities, migration, human rights, development, information and communications technology, innovation and diffusion. We participate in debates between contrasting theoretical perspectives and opposed economic policies. Through an interdisciplinary approach, we improve the effective development of theory and its application.
The policy implications of our members’ research have been utilised by international organisations and institutions such as the: the Council of Europe, the European Foundation for the Improvement of Living and Working Conditions, the European Union Agency for Fundamental Rights, the Government Equalities Office, the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, the Competition and Market Authority, the European Commission, the International Labor Office, the International Telecommunications Union, the Organization for Economic Co-Operation and Development, the United Nations Educational Scientific and Cultural Organization, the United Nation Agenda for the Sustainable Development and the World Bank.
Our current research projects are structured around the following themes.
We warmly welcome enquiries from appropriately qualified applicants who are keen to register for doctoral research (PhD) in the aforementioned research areas.
