STICERD brings together world-class academics to put economics and related disciplines at the forefront of research and policy.
Established in 1978, the Suntory and Toyota International Centres for Economics and Related Disciplines carry out research within nine research programmes. It also houses the Centre for the Analysis of Social Exclusion (CASE) and self standing programmes such as Beveridge 2.0 and the Hayek Programme. The breadth of our research, and its impact on the wider research community and beyond, is detailed in the 'Our work' section of our site.
As well as supporting internal research, the centres fund events, publications and grants to LSE academic staff and international academic visitors.
STICERD Research Grants: Each year, STICERD awards a number of grants to fund research and related events across the LSE.
Grants for PhD Students: Research students in any of STICERD's research programmes, or PhD students, whose supervisor is affiliated to one of STICERD's research programmes, can apply for a grant for their own research.
Tony Atkinson Inequality - What can be done?
Tony Atkinson was one of the most distinguished economists of his generation, and was chair of STICERD from 1980 to 1988. This special public event, named after his last book published in 2015, brings together tributes and discussions of Tony's work.
John Hills joined the LSE in 1986 and played a significant role in STICERD's Welfare State Programme before co-founding CASE in 1997, which he directed between 1997 and 2016. He also co-directed the LSE's International Inequalities Institute 2015-2018 and was Richard Titmuss Professor of Social Policy at the LSE and the Chair of CASE. View tributes to John.
