Economic Development

Oxford Institute for Global Economic Development

What are we doing?
We are improving understanding of why some regions have successfully increased participation in the world economy while others have not, and are informing the policy debate, particularly for the low-income countries currently left behind.

Why is it important?
Although the last 20 years have seen an unprecedented fall in global poverty, largely as a result of countries becoming successfully integrated into the world economy, poverty remains an urgent issue in those countries which have been left behind.

How are we different?
We bring together world class research strength in both development economics and international economics with other fields of expertise to provide insights for developing countries and the global economy.
