The Department of Economics at SOAS is a leading centre for research in economics.

Drawing on our rich tradition in political economy and development economics, our research covers a wide range of topics that are at the core of the global challenges that our economies and societies are facing. These topics include socio-economic inequalities, the environmental crisis, structural transformation, financialisation, social reproduction, the political economy of food, informality, labour, the political economy of institutions, corruption, as well as macroeconomic, social and industrial policies.

The Department of Economics hosts the Centre for Sustainable Finance which provides a forum for interdisciplinary research that enhances the knowledge and understanding of sustainable finance in both the Global North and South.
