CEP celebrated its 30th anniversary in 2020 with a number of activities throughout the year, taking stock of the ground-breaking policy-focused research produced since 1990 and looking at the economic and social challenges ahead.
This is CEP - 30 years of research
For 30 years, the CEP has studied economic performance at all levels: people, firms, cities, nationally and globally. We ask how the economy works and how it can work better.
The CEP Insights series is an introduction to the work of the Centre for Economic Performance since it was set up in 1990.
