The aim of this research area is to study the fundamental economic, social and technological changes that are recasting the global economy, and to develop effective policy responses to them.
The Victoria Institute of Strategic Economic Studies (VISES), within ISILC and incorporating the Victorian Energy Policy Centre, is a multidisciplinary group that conducts core research in this area.
We provide the knowledge base for the development of effective policy responses to key issues the world is facing in:
- human capital
- dynamics of cities and regions
- quality of the environment
- level of equality in the distribution of resources and endowments.
