Economics

This research programme focuses on three areas:

Economics of Organisations 

The research revolves around the organisation of the decision-making process and organisational aspects of the execution of the work (for example, governance, incentives, recruitment and organisational culture).

Economic Geography & Trade

Research concentrates on the causes and consequences of the very unequal distribution of economic activity around the world.

Policy Economics

Research concentrates on the underlying drivers of income and wealth inequality, which increased almost everywhere in the Western world in recent decades.
