Research Areas

Founded in 1928, IRES (Institut de recherches économiques et sociales  -  Institute for Economic and Social Research) promotes interaction between fundamental research, applied research and policy recommendations in economics. Our members publish articles in leading international journals and have solid experience in advising policy makers and international institutions on varied issues related to the labor market, economic forecasts, macroeconomic policies, growth and development, migration policies, trade policies etc.

    1. Research in macroeconomics

    3. Research in international economics.  

A detailed description of each area of research can be found in the appropriate sections.
