The Institute for International Economic Policy (IIEP) is part of the Elliott School of International Affairs at George Washington Universitymarker (GW). It is located at the heart of global economic policy making and supports high-quality academic and policy research that addresses critical issues surrounding the emerging global economy. Faculty members and research scholars focus on economic, political, legal and historical analysis in the fields of international trade, international finance, and development economics. Current research includes climate change adaptation in developing countries, the global financial crisis and prospects for recovery, economics of ultra-poverty, China-US economic relations, herd behavior in financial markets, and the free trade/fair trade debate. The George Washington University chartered IIEP in July 2007. Its current director is Stephen C. Smith.

About the Institute

The Institute for International Economic Policy serves as a catalyst for high quality, multi-disciplinary, and non-partisan research on policy issues surrounding economic globalization. The Institute research program helps develop effective policy options and academic analysis in a time of growing controversies about international economic integration in many countries around the world. The institute's work also encompasses policy responses for those who face continued poverty and financial crises despite worldwide economic growth. Affiliated faculty have appointments in the departments of economics, history, and political science as well as the law and business schools.

IIEP also serves as the institutional home of the Elliott School's International Trade and Investment Policy (ITIP) program. ITIP attracts outstanding master's candidates from around the world who are studying issues directly related to IIEP activities. IIEP also supports the Elliott School's certificate program in International Economic Policy. IIEP works in close collaboration with other George Washington University research centers (such as the Center for International Business Education and Research) and academic departments (see references below).

IIEP also organizes public events, symposia, and seminar series that explore academic and policy debates about globalization. These events help bring together researchers and policy-makers to see how cutting edge research can help inform economic policy making.

The institute takes full advantage of GW's unique location near the world epicenter of international economic policy. In particular, the World Bank, the U.S. Trade Representative, the Inter-American Development Bank, the Department of Statemarker, Department of Treasurymarker, Department of Commercemarker, the Federal Reserve Board, the International Monetary Fundmarker, and the White Housemarker all lie within a ten-block radius of IIEP.
