Univ is proud to support two highly respected and well-known research projects. These projects, The Global Economic Governance Programme and the University College Oxford Blockchain Research Centre, are leaders in their respective fields of study.
The Global Economic Governance Programme
The Global Economic Governance Programme (GEG) was established in 2003 to foster research and debate into how global markets and institutions can better serve the needs of people in developing countries. We are a research programme with a core group of scholars based in Oxford and a network of academics and practitioners across developed and developing countries, co-hosted by University College and the Blavatnik School of Government at the University of Oxford.
The three core objectives of the Programme are:
- to conduct and foster research into international organizations and markets as well as new public-private governance regimes
- to create and develop a network of scholars and policy-makers working on these issues
- to influence debate and policy in both the public and the private sector in developed and developing countries
GEG hosts the Global Leaders Fellowship Programme which brings outstanding post-doctoral scholars from developing and emerging countries to Oxford for one year to work in GEG, followed by one year at Princeton University.
The Programme has been made possible through the generous support of Old Members of University College. Its research projects are funded primarily by the Ford Foundation and the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC).
