IIES researchers engage in research aimed at broad international impact.
This objective is closely linked the mission of IIES – a mission condensing the three broad goals of Stockholm University at a top level: to train PhD economists, conduct cutting-edge research, and actively engage in high-level public policy discussions in Sweden and beyond.
The three aims of the IIES are tightly interconnected. For the training of future PhDs and for ensuring that any policy advice is updated and based on sound empirical and theoretical grounds, an ongoing close engagement with the international research frontier is necessary.
Our research spans a wide range of areas. Below you will find more information.
