The Nottingham Centre for Research on Globalisation and Economic Policy (GEP) is the major centre in Europe studying the impact of globalisation and economic policy and one of the biggest of its kind in the world.

Established in 2001, GEP has a well-founded reputation in the study of international trade, foreign direct investment, immigration and the political economy of globalisation and were pioneers in the application of micro data to these questions. Its research continues to be published in the top field and general interest journals, including over 25 papers in the Journal of International Economics alone.

The centre has an impressive international reputation; its academics have advised the Treasury, the World Bank, OECD and WTO. It also maintains a well-earned reputation as a key producer of future talent; former staff, research fellows and PhD students have gone on to senior positions in academia and policy making around the world.
