WELCOME TO THE CSAE

At the Centre for the Study of African Economies (CSAE), we have been researching economic and social development in Africa since 1986. These days, our large team of development economists research not only countries in Africa, but also in other developing areas of the world.

We are part of the Social Sciences Division at the University of Oxford, with researchers in the Department of Economics, the Blavatnik School of Government, and the Oxford Department of International Development.
