Dr Eric Owen Smith

Smith.jpg (11770 bytes) I am an Honorary Fellow at the Centre for International, Financial and Economics Research in the Department of Economics at \par Loughborough University, a Visiting Professor at the Universitaet Trier and a Visiting Fellow at the Institute for German Studies at the University of Birmingham. Within the Department I teach the Economics of the EU on a part-time basis. My current research interests are focused on comparative studies of the German and British economies. As well as numerous publications in these fields, I have written the definitive English study on The German Economy (see below). A series of essays edited by a former ERASMUS student in the Department (Lothar Funk) was recently written in my honour (also see below). I enjoy applying my academic expertise as an ACAS arbitrator and a member of Employment Tribunals.
