Department of Economics
Research and Publications


The Department is very active in research.  It has a large and diverse research environment that is enhanced by collaborations with colleagues from other departments, e.g. Management, Political Science, History, as well as other Universities. The research covers broadly defined themes which include macroeconomics, energy economics, climate change and the economy and tourism.

Much of this work is either published in academic journals or presented at conferences. Some of the published articles appear in highly rated international journals, which is a good indicator of the high quality of the work that members of the Department continue to produce. The large number of unpublished manuscripts suggests that this level of output will continue into the next academic year.
 
The public service contributions of lecturers in the Department were also notable. This is evidenced by their membership on various non-university committees and their contributions to public debate, especially on economic matters.
 
Members of the Department also served on various University Committees and Committees of the Faculty of Social Sciences. Their contributions to the work of the Department, in terms of counselling students and the performance of other administrative functions were invaluable.
