Economics and Public Policy courses at St Edmund Hall

2 September 2016

In August we welcomed two groups of Chinese academics for two-week residential courses in Economics and Public Policy. The summer courses were once again organised by the Oxford Chinese Economy Programme (OXCEP), which has been working in partnership with St Edmund Hall since May 2013 to promote the study of the Chinese economy at the College.

The Hall hosted two groups of participants last month - a total of 61 delegates from Chinese universities. Professor John Knight (University of Oxford Professor of Economics and an Emeritus Fellow of St Edmund Hall) supervised the academic content of the courses. Much of the teaching was provided by St Edmund Hall Fellows and lecturers, including Dr Martin Slater (Emeritus Fellow), Dr Debrah Noe (Lecturer in Finance), Dr Dominik Karos (Fellow and specialist in microeconomics, game theory and mathematical methods), Dr Suellen Littleton (Lecturer in Management), Professor Climent Quintana-Domeque (Fellow and Associate Professor in Economics), Dr Outi Aarnio (Fellow and Lecturer in Economics).

The courses both received excellent feedback from participants, who also had some time to see the sights of Oxford, including the Museum of Natural History, the Ashmolean and Modern Art Oxford, and to enjoy excursions to London, Cambridge and Bicester Village.

During the past three years the courses have successfully trained a total of 163 Chinese academics, including 52 PhD supervisors in Economics, Public Policy and related academic disciplines.
