Centre for Economic Performance


Centre for Economic Performance

part of London School of Economics and Political Science

The Centre for Economic Performance (CEP) carries out policy-focused research on the causes of economic growth and effective ways to create a fair, inclusive and sustainable society. Established at LSE in 1990, CEP is one of Europe's leading economic research centres. It addresses two main questions: How to improve economic performance, and how to share the gains of this growth in a fair, inclusive and sustainable way? Research at the Centre tackles a wide range of subjects with a focus on informing public policy. Our work covers six broad areas: community wellbeing, education and skills, economic growth, labour markets, trade, and urban economics. CEP researchers investigate topics such as the changing workplace, globalisation, immigration, school performance and adult skills, crime, mental health and the disparities between regions.
