The Oxford Economics Department has a large and vibrant group of economists working in diverse areas of microeconomic theory, including game theory, decision theory, behavioral economics, information economics and contract theory, action theory, general equilibrium, and network economics.

There are two seminar series especially relevant to microeconomists: the Nuffield Economic Theory seminars (Friday afternoon) and the Economic Theory Workshop (Tuesday lunchtime in even-numbered weeks of term). In addition, there is a Student Research Workshop where graduate students present their work.
