The Causality Project

Research on causality - what it is and how we find out about it - is well established in the Centre. There have been multiple research projects on this topic, looking at:

  • What is the nature of causality?
  • What are valid methods for causal inference?
  • Which methods of causal inference are suited to which contexts?

Work takes diverse forms: seminars, conferences with invited speakers and the publication of a large number of discussion papers.

Recent work has concentrated on three fields: economics, health/medicine and biology. The following are the causality-related projects at the Centre; the last three are currently active.
