Publications

Our publications address current issues and challenges and stimulate debates in the academic community and in policy-making institutions and governments. They come under four distinct series:

  • Books – published by major editors, these are the outcome of our fundamental research
  • Briefings – elaborate policy advice with academic depth and rigour
  • Research Briefs – give targeted policy advice in a short and accessible format on ongoing projects and summarize the main messages of longer academic publications
  • Working Papers – discussion pieces that can develop into peer-reviewed papers, these contribute to the debate in their field.
