CCBS Technical Handbooks

​​ Handbooks    Joint Research Papers   Lecture Series  Books

​Our Technical Handbook series provides comprehensive coverage of complex topics which concern central banks and are targeted primarily at specialist central bank economists. As with the Handbooks in Central Banking, these have grown out of our core activities of training and expert advice.
The Technical Handbooks often contain more methodological material than the Handbooks, incorporating the experiences and expertise of the author(s) on topics that address the problems encountered by central bankers in their day-to-day work.
Technical Handbooks

They are not intended solely as an introduction to a particular topic and develop a rigorous framework for analysis where appropriate. They may reflect research findings as well as more practical aspects to the topic: Often they provide a `toolkit' for further study and
Technical Handbooks aim to be reasonably self-contained, with an indication of the necessary pre-requisites and recommendations for further reading. The views expressed in the Handbooks are those of the authors and not necessarily those of the Bank of England.
