Welcome

Durham Research in Economic Analysis and Mechanisms (Dream) focuses on three prominent areas:  

  1. the analysis and design of bargaining protocols
  2. the theory of mechanism design and its applications
  3. the theory of auctions and its empirical analysis 

Other areas that also draw strong attention from the centre are the nature and origin of market power and its distortions on the economy, economic analysis under bounded rationality, the design of contests and its empirical analysis as well as the design of betting systems and its behavioural implications.
