What are we doing?
We are building a broad platform for research collaboration and practical engagement on economic theory and policy making at the global level. Our aim is to stimulate innovation and debate in economics, support visionary interdisciplinary research, and radically redefine the education of the next generation of economists and business and government leaders.
Why is it important?
Fresh thinking in economics is required to address a number of critical challenges the world faces, ranging from managing systemic financial crises, to reinvigorating economic growth, addressing rising inequality, encouraging economic development, and developing new models of long-term sustainability.
How are we different?
INET Oxford is a rapidly expanding interdisciplinary research centre founded at the Oxford Martin School. Our team of top scholars from across the sciences, social sciences and humanities work together with policymakers and practitioners to develop innovative new approaches to major economic issues. We are applying a broad toolkit to this challenge, using techniques from disciplines including economics, statistics, physics, biology, computer science, psychology, anthropology, sociology, political science, and other fields that can bring new insights into the workings (and dysfunctions) of economic systems.
INET Oxford involves a wide number of scholars based across the University of Oxford, including the Saïd Business School, Department of Mathematics, Department of Economics, and Department of International Development.
