Economics Department Major Collaborations


Visiting Scholar Program with the School of Interdisciplinary Area Studies at Oxford University

In January 2015, the Lahore School of Economics launched a Visiting Scholar Program with the School of Interdisciplinary Area Studies (SIAS) at Oxford University - the Oxford-Lahore School ILM Program. The first batch of four Lahore School students from the PhD Economics program were registered for the Lent term and attended lectures and seminars as well as interacted with faculty from both SIAS and the Department of Economics at Oxford to discuss their dissertation research.


The students were hosted by Professor Matthew McCartney (Director, South Asian Studies) at Oxford University. Professor McCartney inaugurated the ILM Program along with Dr. Azam Chaudhry (Dean, Department of Economics, Lahore School of Economics) and welcomed the four scholars: Rabia Arif, Maryiam Haroon, Zunia Tirmazee and Nida Jamil. The scholars also met with Hermoine Lee (President of Wolfson College, Oxford University) to discuss areas of further collaboration between Oxford University and the Lahore School of Economics.


A reciprocal group of visiting scholars from Oxford visited the Lahore School later in the spring of 2015.
