The Suntory and Toyota International Centres for Economics (STICERD) brings together world-class academics to put economics and related disciplines at the forefront of research and policy.
Founded in 1978 by the renowned Japanese economist Michio Morishima, with donations from Suntory and Toyota, we are a thriving research community within LSE.
Research at STICERD is predominately carried out within eight research programmes and we receive funding to support this research from a variety of sources including research councils, charities and government agencies.
STICERD also houses the Centre for the Analysis of Social Exclusion (CASE) and self-standing programmes such as the Hub for Equal Representation (funded by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation), Beveridge 2.0 and the Hayek Programme. As well as supporting internal research, the centres fund small research grants for LSE academic staff and PhD students affiliated with the centres, public lectures such as the annual Morishima lecture and international research visits through our visitors programme. We also host a wide range of seminars covering subjects such as: Theoretical Economics, Econometrics, Public Economics, Economics of Industry, Development, Growth, Political Science and Political Economy, and Psychology and Economics.
