CITYPERC is London’s hub for expert analysis on politics and economics. The Centre brings together world-leading expertise from academia, public policy, the financial sector and civil society to address key issues and challenges facing global capitalism today.
Established in 2012, the Centre has rapidly become a focus for interdisciplinary research across the UK, Europe and beyond. CITYPERC has promoted innovative workshops, conferences and public events on contemporary issues including tax justice, austerity economics, shadow banking and financial regulation. The Centre designed and developed the first BSc degree programme in International Political Economy in the UK, which opened at City’s Department of International Politics in 2014.
