Centre for Applied Macro- and Petroleum Economics (CAMP)
CAMP is established to bring together economists working on applied macroeconomic issues, with special emphasis on Energy economics.
The centre's objectives are to advance research and post-graduate training in relevant fields. The Centre will conduct original and objective research to improve the understanding of macroeconomic issues of resource rich economies, and to act as a forum for discussion of policy issues between academia, government and the private sector.
