What we're researching
Our research is driven by the desire to create better, more rewarding jobs and careers; a more sustainable economy and a more equitable world.
From the impact of globalisation, Covid-19, conflict to transformational technology – our research is always innovative, reflecting the challenges of today and tomorrow.
Study of States, Markets and People (STAMP) is a major inter-disciplinary initiative in the School of Business & Law whose primary focus is the study of global and European political economy and the forms of governance and regulation required to address socio-economic/financial issues and geo-political conflicts and crises.
Having long studied the intensification of banking and financial crisis and the public policies of neo-liberalism and ordoliberalism resulting in many workshops and publications , STAMP's new research projects are now building new research capacity and infrastructure on five main axes:
- The impact of COVID-19 on local and global economic sectors, led by Dr. Francis B. Frimpong
- Technology transfer in the UK's tertiary sector in the context of UK-China interaction, a research conducted by STAMP Fellow, Prof Benzhao Yang of Northwestern Polytechnic University (China)
- The global economic and geopolitical antagonism between the USA and China, a project completed and turned into a monograph co-authored by Dr Shampa Roy-Mukherjee, Prof Vassilis K. Fouskas, Dr Qingan (Angus) Huang and Dr Ejike Udeogu (to be published by Palgrave in October 2020)
- A pilot project on the issue of "brain drain" in Bosnia & Herzegovina, examining outward youth migration in the volatile Republic of SRPSKA
- The impact of the crisis of globalisation on the transition economies of western Balkans, a collection of papers edited and peer-reviewed by Dr Shampa Roy Mukherjee and Prof Jovo Ateljevic (University of Banja Luka, BiH) for the Journal of Balkan and Near Eastern Studies (JBNES, Routledge-Taylor & Francis, 8 issues a year since 1998) - the collection will appear in print in JBNES, v.23, n.1, January 2021.
STAMP researchers are also involved in research programmes related to the examination of the "gig economy" in the UK and its impact on well-being and healthy ageing. /p>
