Biography

Alan Roe has degrees from the Universities of Leeds, Wales and Cambridge. Early in his career he was a research economist at the University of Dar-es-Salaam and then at the University of Cambridge (Economic Growth Project), and later a Visiting Professor of Economics at Washington University in the USA. He then taught economics for many years at the University of Warwick, where he was also for a period the Chairman of Department. In 1994 he was appointed Principal Economist at the World Bank where he worked for 7 years to design and implement large financial sector reform projects in the economies of the Former Soviet Union.

After retiring from the Bank in 2000, he returned part-time to Warwick University but also joined Oxford Policy Management (OPM) as Principal Economist and a Board Director. In this capacity he helped to initiate OPM’s involvement in both financial sector reform and development and in natural resources issues. Now retired, he remains as an Associate at both OPM and Warwick, and a Senior Non-Resident Research Fellow at UNU-WIDER.

Recent work includes a number of case studies on the impacts of mining and oil and gas for both ICMM and a number of extractives companies. He was also a lead author of the Toolkit now employed by the International Council of Mining and Metals (ICMM) and their corporate members for analysing the economic and social impacts of large mining projects in low and middle-income economies. Ten country case studies utilising this Toolkit have now been completed – the latest in Brazil and Zambia. He has written extensively in both books, academic journals and for other outlets.
