The new IIPF seat at the Ifo Institute in Munich
The International Institute of Public Finance (IIPF) is the world organization of Public Finance economists. Founded in Paris in 1937, it has since become the pre-eminent academic institution for study and research on economic public policy topics, and the platform of choice for the establishment of contacts and exchange of opinions on policy matters among scholars of all nationalities. At a time when academic economic research tends to distance itself from economic policy problems, the IIPF plays a valuable role in giving economics an orientation towards the real world.
Membership of the IIPF has grown steadily and now stands at almost 800 members from fifty countries. In an academic area that is becoming increasingly specialized, the IIPF seeks to generate intellectual interchanges among all who research, teach or practice in the fields of Public Economics. Its members represent universities and the civil service in industrialized and developing countries alike.
