Our research mission is to perform frontier research that advances our knowledge in both theoretical and applied economics, and to disseminate that knowledge mainly through publication in prominent peer-reviewed journals. Guided by the University's long-standing commitment to the Catholic social tradition, we stress policy-relevant research that contributes to important debates on economic, social, and political problems facing humanity.
