The Political Economy Research Centre (PERC) is a new centre for cultural and political analysis of economic life.

Our work cuts across various disciplines, including heterodox economics, political science, sociology, anthropology, media and cultural studies.

We aim to achieve new critical and empirical perspectives on political economy, breaking down boundaries between economics and other social sciences, and between experts and public, in the process.
