Periodically, we will publish a collection of some of the IPP’s members’ public interventions, as well as the impact of our projects and publications on the public debate. This is our second edition.


In the last 2/3 weeks, the public debate has been marked by Greek events, and several of our directors have been active participants. More recently, the publishing of data concerning 2015 budgetary execution have been subject to analysis and reflection.

Paulo Trigo Pereira  analysed these data yesterday (Sunday, 1st of March) in an article that serves as a good introduction to the specificities of public expenditure data.

Paulo Trigo Pereira, Pedro Pita Barros and Ricardo Cabral, as well as other IPP initiatives, are amply cited in this article by Francisco Louçã which spurred debate on the 27th of February (Friday).

No mesmo dia, Ricardo Cabral comentava, também no blogue/rubrica “Tudo Menos Economia” do Público, os desafios que enfrenta o governo grego nas difíceis negociações que terão lugar até abril/maio com “as instituições”.

Marina Costa Lobo wrote on the 26th of February (Thursday) in Público about how the “post-Troika” has highlighted, for the first time in the history of Portuguese democracy, a gulf between the two main areas of public policy regarding European issues, and how these issues have increasingly dominated national public debate.

Antes, a 12 de fevereiro, Paulo Trigo Pereira esteve na TVI 24, onde se discutiu o impasse nas negociações entre a Grécia e a Europa.
