Centre for Experimental Studies and Research (CESAR)

The Centre for Experimental Studies and Research – CESAR – provides high quality research and analysis using economic theory and experimental methods.

Experimental methods take advantage of randomization and tight control to make statements about the causal effects of policies. Experimental methods are applied in the laboratory as well as in the field.

Our core objectives are to publish research findings in leading international academic journals; to provide research based policy advice to private business and public entities; and to serve as an active network for researchers and decision makers.
