Professor Ben Lockwood came to the University of Warwick from the University of Exeter. He is a CEPR Fellow and a member of the Editorial Board of the Economic Journal. His research interests are in the areas of international tax policy coordination, decentralisation and federalism, the growth of the state, and the design of environmental agreements. He has published widely on these topics in Journals such as the Journal of Public Economics, the Journal of International Economics, the Economic Journal, and others. He is currently engaged in three projects; the first is the construction and analysis of a historical data-set of excise taxes in EU countries, with a focus on cross-border shopping and convergence issues, the second is a project on the design of environmental agreements (joint with Peter Newell and John whalley, and funded by the McArthur foundation), and the third is a project on the growth of the state and globalisation.
He is the editor of the CSGR's Working Paper series, and liaises between CSGR and the Centre for Economic Policy Research (CEPR). He is also co-organising (with Ted To) this year's Warwick Economic Summer Research Workshop on Globalisation.
