The Foundation for European Progressive Studies and the University of Greenwich are launching the Greenwich Political Economy Research Centre (GPERC). The aim of GPECR is to encourage interdisciplinary analysis of the linkages between institutions, power structures and economic dynamics with a view to:

  • Enhance knowledge of the pressing problems of our time such as inequalities, unemployment, climate change, energy crisis, housing crisis, care deficit, aging, productivity, innovation, and technological change; and 
  • Provide independent and cutting-edge research evidence that will expand the range of evidence-informed and progressive options for policy and practice. 

GPERC brings together an innovative group of researchers who want to expand the knowledge frontier by challenging orthodoxies in economic and social science research.
