Newsletter - February 2020
Welcome to NIESR’s newsletter, a quarterly catch-up with the main publications, events and media stories the Institute has been involved with and a look ahead to what we are planning for the next quarter.
Economic Review No.251 - "The Economic Implications of Climate Change Mitigation Policies"

Our 251st edition looks at some of the economic issues involved in acting to cut greenhouse gas emissions to a level consistent with the ambition to limit global temperature increases. Together they help explain why progress in tackling this “urgent problem” is likely to be slow even though “we know how to do it”. You can read the introduction here.

From 2020, our Economic Review is published by Cambridge University Press. You can subscribe to the Review here and subscribe to receive email alerts here.
Forthcoming events
We have a full programme of events for Spring-Summer 2020. Events include Lord Sainsbury discussing his book exploring a new theory of productivity; Robert Frank (New York Times best selling author and Economics columnist) on how peer pressure can persuade us to do more for the environment in his new book "Under the Influence"; and Prof. Jutta Allmendinger, award winning sociologist, will give a lecture on housing poverty and how this is increasingly affecting the working population.

More information about what is coming up is available on our Events page or via this link.
Events this past quarter

We hosted the Macroprudential Policy and Practice Roundtable in January, along with a Youth Jobs Gap policy workshop on Youth Unemployment. We launched our new Parliament and Government Unit, to offer support for briefings, presentations, and other activities for parliamentary and government organisations. Alongside our regular Economists' Briefing to accompany our Economic Review, we also held our regular Embassies Briefing.
Britain after Brexit

Now that we have formally left the EU and move towards the end of the transition period, our focus moves to Britain after Brexit. You can view our latest research and comment pieces on this topic here.
