The Department of Economics would like to congratulate Dr Abi Adams, Associate Professor of Economics and Fellow of New College, on being short-listed for an ESRC Celebrating Impact Prize 2018.
The annual ESRC Celebrating Impact Prize, recognises and rewards researchers whose work has made a real difference to society or the economy. The prize is awarded to ESRC-funded social science researchers or ESRC associates who have achieved impact through outstanding research, collaborative partnerships, engagement or knowledge exchange activities.
Abi has been short-listed for her project titled 'Access to justice and the economics of the rule of law' which directly contributed to the overturning of a Supreme Court judgement, leading to the abolishment of employment tribunal fees.
The awards ceremony will take place at Royal Society on the afternoon of 20 June 2018, where the winners will be announced.
