Global Economy research
Research Theme Champion: Dr Chamu Kuppuswamy (Hertfordshire Law School)
Our research addresses issues in the Global Economy including, innovation, development, and economic growth, with an emphasis on inclusive, sustainable processes and historical approaches to understanding the global economy.
From managing complex change, digitisation of labour, value creation, work-based learning, employment, development and leadership in organisations and professions, the role of institutions, international law and regulation, to the creative and digital economies, audio-engineering, adaptive systems, design and material culture, policy, and sustainable energy technologies, our researchers engage in specialist and interdisciplinary work, informing policy at the local, national, regional, and international levels.
