First step for fresh approach to macroeconomic policy

Prof Martin Ellison to lead Nuffield's new centre on applied macroeconomic policy 

The first event for a new research centre to be established at Nuffield College will be held on 18 May. The full-day workshop brings world-renowned experts to a round table discussion on challenges for international economics. Participants include Kenneth Rogoff, Sanjaya Lall Visiting Professor at Oxford, and Hélène Rey, Lord Bagri Professor of Economics at London Business School. The new research centre, to be called the Nuffield Centre for Applied Macro Policy (NuCamp), has been established to create a space in which academics and policymakers can freely and openly discuss current trends, insights and policies that influence how economies function. Through its convening power and activities focussed on holding conferences, workshops and visitor programmes, NuCamp will foster the development of fresh analytical and empirical approaches that promise to create better links and improved knowledge exchange between the academic and policy worlds of macroeconomic problems. NuCamp's first director is Martin Ellison, Professor of Economics and Nuffield Professorial Fellow. Further details about NuCamp will be provided when the centre officially launches later this year.
