CSES BECOMES AN INSTITUTE
transition of the Centre for Strategic Economic Studies (CSES) to a
University Institute was recently approved by Victoria University Council.
The new Victoria Institute of Strategic Economic Studies (VISES) is
led by former Director of CSES Professor Bruce Rasmussen, and incorporates
the Centre for Policy Studies (CoPS). CoPS will continue to operate in a
semi-autonomous manner, led by Professor James Giesecke.
Our vision is to focus on the study of the fundamental economic, social and
technological changes that are recasting the global economy, and to develop
effective policy responses to them. As a world leader in computable general
equilibrium modelling, CoPS will help to give effect to these ambitions.
NEW ACIAR PROJECT
VISES has been awarded funding of more than $900,000 over three years by
the Australian Centre for International Agricultural Research (ACIAR) for a
project titled 'Enabling Agricultural Policies for Benefitting Smallholders
in Dairy, Citrus and Mango Industries of Pakistan'. Read more.
