Publications

A major aim of IPP is to disseminate knowledge and enhance public deliberation on relevant topics for public policy and institutions, in our core research and debate fields. To serve this purpose, IPP develops four publication series:



The IPP’s policy briefs take a clear stance regarding a specific topic that is publicly debated. They use clear and accessible language, without jeopordising conceptual precision.


Policy papers can focus on both specific and general themes. They analise a particular theme within the public debate in an analytical manner. They are accessible and concise, but can also contribute with original data.


Reports are longer and more exhaustive than their counterparts, and typically entail a detailed empirical analysis. They explore specific topics in depth and consider all angles.


Working papers tend to be more academic in nature, and ultimately serve as a basis for discussion regarding the IPP’s major research themes.
