Welcome to OxCarre

OxCarre was established in October 2007 to become a global centre of excellence in the economics of resource rich countries.  The Centre will conduct original and objective research to improve understanding of the performance of resource rich economies, and to inform policy design to improve this performance.  It will also act as the core of a global network of researchers in this area.  It will bring together existing Oxford expertise in theoretical and empirical economics and apply this to the issues facing resource rich economies.

OxCarre’s establishment was made possible by a generous grant from BP, from which it receives core funding.  This is a non-exclusive relationship, and OxCarre welcomes support from other sources.  Our research is independent of positions taken by any funders.
