6th European Conference on Networks
May 24-25, 2018
Established in Barcelona in 2013, the Institute of Political Economy and Governance (IPEG) is a research center that focuses on the interaction between politics (political regimes and institutions, political order and conflict, the aggregation of preferences and interests) and economics (development, the economic cycle, redistribution and welfare). Among other projects the researchers of IPEG have currently five ERC Grants.
In addition to producing and distributing research with international impact, IPEG’s strategic objectives include fostering greater integration among various parts of the social sciences in Barcelona, particularly among political science, economics, sociology and history. Six researchers of IPEG enjoy currently the prestigious ERC Grants which is an indication of the level of excellence of their research.
IPEG, housed at the Ciutadella Campus, is the result of the joint collaboration of “La Caixa” Foundation, the Government of Catalonia and has received the institutional support of Universitat Pompeu Fabra and the Barcelona Graduate School of Economics.
