The research agenda of the Centre for Economic Policy Research is set by supply (the ideas of researchers) and demand (the priorities of users and funders), intermediated by CEPR. It may be useful simply to list the programme areas and some of the topics they currently cover: · International Macroeconomics - EMS and EMU, growth, employment... · International Trade - regionalism (EU internal market, EU enlargement, EU relations with other regional groupings), economic geography, developing countries, trade and environment... · Industrial Organisation - competition policy, regulation, IO approach to financial markets, deregulation and competition in European network industries... · Financial Economics - corporate finance and governance, market microstructure, securities and derivatives... · Labour Economics - labour markets, labour market policies in Europe, migration, comparisons of long-run growth... · Public Policy - the welfare state, political economy, taxation · Transition Economics - policies and performance in Central Europe, EU-EE economic relations... As this summary indicates, European integration and the interaction between Europe and the rest of the world have created a demand for Europe-wide policy research, to which CEPR has responded. At the same time, policy-oriented work on aspects of European integration and the many other policy issues highlighted in the list above arises from the researchers’ fundamental interests in such topics as exchange rates, ‘strategic’ trade theory, product and labour market imperfections, policy credibility and ‘political equilibrium’. The value added by CEPR itself is partly created by bringing demand and supply together.
