Research Overview

Land Economy’s research concerns how society interacts with the environment, both natural and built. We are multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary, principally drawing on economics, law, finance and planning but also including insights from several other disciplines, from engineering to political science. 

What we aim to do

Our work aims to inform debates about some of the biggest issues facing the world – climate change, loss of biodiversity, threats to food security, the effects of migration – as well as contributing to national debates about levelling up, housing, urban and regional development and the stability of financial markets. We also work on more fundamental issues that lie behind current debates, in for example law and governance and in finance. We currently incorporate the following centres:
