At KCL, we undertake Socio-Economic analysis for donor agencies and public sector organizations. This is a multi disciplinary approach to studying economic phenomena and the social implications and effect that result from those phenomena. Economists and sociologist have studied a range of social issues through an economic lens.
The disciplinary draws on theories and research methods from sociology, economic and other sciences.
Many of the Socio-Economic studies undertaken by us examine the social effect of economic events, such as recession, effect of flood, poverty stratification, social safety nets, absence of essential facilities such as; drinkable water, access to modern toilet facilities, good infrastructural facilities, factory closing or international trade agreements. The social consequences of such explicitly economic events can be limited to a single community or can be regional, national or even international in scope.
