Research

Our objective is to engage in innovative research that extends the frontiers of the discipline, contributing to a deeper understanding of how modern economies function, and how they can adapt to future challenges. Our research spans almost all the major sub-fields of economics.

As a Department, we are consistently ranked in the top 30 in the world, and in the top 10 in Europe, for the quality of our research output. For example, we are ranked 20th in the world and 5th in Europe in the most recent Tilburg University ranking of Economics departments, and we are currently 25th in the world, and 6th in Europe, in the most recent QS University Rankings.

In the most recent Research Excellence Framework (REF 2014) to evaluate the research output of UK Universities, Warwick was ranked 4th in the UK, behind only the LSE, UCL and Oxford, on a measure that takes into account both the proportion of faculty submitted and the quality of outputs submitted. In our submission, 45% of our research was rated as 'world -leading' (4*) and a further 51% rated as 'internationally excellent' (3*).

Research in the Department is based in a number of Research Groups, each of which has its own seminar or workshop series. The interests of individual researchers often overlap the Groups; the purpose of the Groups is to allow Department members with similar interests to meet regularly and to support each other's research.

Teaching excellence event: Everyday Excellence in an Extraordinary Year

Link to Teaching excellence event: Everyday Excellence in an Extraordinary Year (warwick.ac.uk)

Steffie Paredes-Fuentes, Nick Jackson, Atisha Ghosh and Caroline Elliott are all involved in this event in different ways.

This half day workshop-style event organised by WIHEA's Teaching Recognition and Reward Learning Circle, aims to take us from the Warwick (and sector) understanding of teaching excellence (i.e., where policy is made, awards granted etc.) to the idea of the ‘Everyday Excellence’ we all embody in our teaching practice, most particularly in the challenging circumstances of the last 12 months.

Research Impact

Our research seeks to generate knowledge that can be used to strengthen economies and benefit societies around the world. From migration and trade to international development and preventing financial crises, we address some of the most pressing issues of our time and provide recommendations to policymakers and other stakeholders.

Our academics collaborate with organisations including the Bank of England, international and local governments, think tanks and NGOs. They are sought-after in public service roles, regularly providing advice to parliamentary committees and serving on government advisory boards.

Our Working Papers series feature new ideas and research from academics within the Department of Economics.

The vast majority of papers are available online, the earliest of which is from 1975. If a paper is unavailable online, hard copies can be requested free of charge.
