The Centre for Analysis of Social Exclusion (CASE), established in October 1997, is a multi- disciplinary research centre located within the Suntory and Toyota International Centres for Economics and Related Disciplines (STICERD) at the London School of Economics and Political Science. The focus of research undertaken in CASE is on the exploration of different dimensions of social disadvantage, particularly from longitudinal and neighbourhood perspectives, and examination of the impact of public policy. CASE’s research has always had a strong policy focus. Publications can be downloaded from its internet site http://sticerd.lse.ac.uk/case.
CASE and ISER will lead work package 7.
CASE has been involved in a number of international collaborations, including currently GINI (Growing inequalities Impacts, FP7 2010-2013) and the Weak Market Cities programme/City Reformers’ Network (with funding from French and German governments and UK sources). Members were involved in LoWER (FP6, 1996-2008), the development of the EUROMOD initiative, and in work on the implications of differences in housing and health care systems for international comparisons of income distribution and poverty rates for EUROSTAT.
