STICERD brings together world-class academics to put economics and related disciplines at the forefront of research and policy.
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 our research focus pages and interactive annual reports.
STICERD research programmes
STICERD funds the research of the following research programmes
Development: This programme fosters theoretical and empirical research into the design, impact and determinants of public policy and organisational change.
Econometrics: Our research focuses on areas such as long memory time series, nonparametric and semiparametric methods, Edgeworth approximations, adaptive learning and dynamic panel data.
Economic Theory: This group runs seminars inviting researchers from around the world to present papers on topics including decision theory, mechanism design, behavioural economics, political economy and game theory.
Economics of Environment and Energy: This programme examines the interaction between human activity and the natural environment. We work on how economic growth can be made cleaner, and how to mitigate the damages from this growth.
Psychology and Economics: This programme focuses on psychology and behavioural economics, carrying out empirical and theoretical research aimed at incorporating greater psychological realism into rigorous economic analysis.
Public Economics: We conduct frontier work on inequality and public policies, including research on the design of tax and transfer programmes, the future of social insurance, and the role of behavioural frictions for public policy.

STICERD provides support and a home to other areas of research:
The Centre for Analysis of Social Exclusion is a multi-disciplinary research centre exploring social disadvantage and the role of social and public policies in preventing, mitigating or exacerbating it. Formed in 1997, the centre grew out of the Welfare State Programme at STICERD.
