The research Interests of the Economy, Society and History cluster interrelate to the wider ambitions of the Centre for Business in Society, the Faculty of Business and Law, and the University, while recognising the significance of historical perspective and methods to a fuller understanding of pressing social and economic issues.
The themes of the cluster reflect the ongoing funded research activities, publications, and future ambitions of the researchers within it. All of these inter-related themes are linked to pressing social issues, such as social and economic inequalities and economic convergence, market volatility and stability, international relations, and environmental sustainability.
The cluster is also concerned with engaging with scholars in other disciplines and other stakeholders (government, industry, non-governmental) to identify the lessons of history for contemporary understanding.
