Academic interests

Mayes' main academic interest lies in the aspects of the problems raised by closer economic, financial and monetary integration particularly in Europe. In the EuroDiv Project, Mayes is working specifically on the political economy workpackage. He is looking both at the implications of a "banking union" and the enhanced fiscal aspects of monetary union for the future structures of governance and operation of the EU/EEA. His work will consider the implications of the diversity of impact of both the measures and the enduring financial crisis.

He is a former Director of the New Zealand Institute of Economic Research and the Professor of Economics at London South Bank University and has been Senior Research Fellow at the National Institute of Economic and Social Research in London and the Centre for European Policy Studies in Brussels.
