Sciences Po Economics Discussion Papers

The Department of Economics publishes a discussion paper series focusing on the current research of our faculty members. Our goal is to make this early research available to fellow economists, scholars and institutions all over the world. To that end, we have created a special collection called the Sciences Po Economics Discussion Papers.

The collection is available on Sciences Po's virtual institutional repository (SPIRE) and HAL and is linked to RePEc's EconPapers.

Antoine FEREY is the scientific coordinator of the Sciences Po Economics Discussion Papers series. The publication coordinator is Melissa Mundell (email).
