Research Group: Centre for Banking, Finance and Sustainable Development
The Centre focuses on the link between the financial sector, and here in particular the banking system, and economic growth and development. The latter is interpreted in the broadest possible way, including and increasingly focusing on the sustainability aspect of both banking and development.
Currently Active: Yes
The Centre operates in an interdisciplinary fashion. Members hail not only from the Finance Group at the School of Management, but also the Economics Division in the School of Social Sciences, and it is open to any other discipline.
The objectives of the Centre are to:
- conduct and encourage high quality research in the relationship between finance and growth, and finance and sustainable growth.
- engage in interdisciplinary and inter University research through collaboration with contacts in the University of Southampton, in the UK and overseas.
- disseminate the research of the Centre as widely as possible through published research, presentations at conferences and seminars.
- engage with a range of stakeholders in the academic, professional and industrial spheres.
