CAGE Policy Reports

5 Titles

CAGE is a research centre based in the Department of Economics at the University of Warwick. We conduct independent policy-driven research informed by history, culture and behaviour. Our aim is to move beyond traditional measures of economic success to consider broader influences on global prosperity; from cultural and behavioural attitudes to voter preferences and political institutions. We analyse historical and contemporary data to draw out lessons for modern policy. CAGE is supported by the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC).

We are a small team of experts seeking to apply economic principles to ask new and innovative questions of data. We want to know how and why economies are successful, and how history, culture and behaviour shape the global economy (and vice versa).

We produce robust evidence to inform policymakers and journalists and influence both policy and debate. Our core team consists of nine Research Theme Leaders and Deputy Leaders who work across four research themes. We also have a number of internal and external associates who contribute to our research.

CAGE Policy Reports

Our policy briefings and themed policy reports seek to draw out policy recommendations and findings to inform current debate.
