UCL Centre for Capitalism Studies

The UCL Centre for Capitalism Studies is a world-leading centre for critical interdisciplinary research into the past, present, and future of capitalism. It brings together UCL faculty and students studying how markets, finance and economic institutions shape our everyday life, structure societies’ capacity to change, and are contested and remade across time and space.

Our international partner institutions include the Heilbroner Centre for Capitalism Studies in the New School of Social Research, the Observatory of Market Society Polarization in Sciences-Po Paris and the Instituto de Investigación en Ciencias Sociales in Chile.
