"I am delighted that our department has retained its position as one of the global leaders in research in economics. The results are a testimony to the hard work of our colleagues facilitated also by the supportive environment our department has to offer. The volume and relevance of outstanding research produced at York has been steadily increasing in recent years, and we wish to retain this trend to the benefit of the global professional community, our students and the wider society."
