IREF’s Call for Research Projects
Posted on Thursday, May 03, 2018

IREF is a free-market oriented think tank based in France. It promotes ideas, debates, events, and rigorous academic research. IREF supports research projects that lead to the production of original papers of academic quality of at least 7,000 words. This support is not a prize to published work, nor is it an encouragement to “work in progress”.
The candidates must submit a research proposal with clear policy implications. The paper will be circulated as an IREF working paper. The author is expected to publish it in a reputed academic journal. The amount of financial support varies from 4,000 to 7,000 euros, plus research costs. The amount depends on the number and qualifications of the authors, as well as on the proposed topic. The candidates must specify the names and qualifications of all the authors of the paper.
The candidates are welcome to submit research proposals in the following areas:
- The role of government and international organisations in modern societies
- The nature and legitimacy of policymaking
- Rent-seeking, regulation, taxation, public expenditure and public debt
- Policy-making from an international perspective (protectionism, exchange rates, currency areas)
- The economics of the welfare state
- The role and nature of judicial systems from a law-and-economics perspective
Although IREF focuses on economic issues, an interdisciplinary approach is welcome. 

Candidates are encouraged to submit their proposals by August 31, 2018.
