How to get there (building 24):

Established in Barcelona in February 2013, the Institute of Political Economy and Governance (IPEG) is a research center that focuses on the interaction between politics (political regimes and institutions, political order and conflict, the aggregation of preferences and interests) and economics (development, the economic cycle, redistribution and welfare).

In addition to producing and distributing research with international impact, IPEG’s strategic objectives include fostering greater integration among various parts of the social sciences in Barcelona, particularly among political science, economics, sociology and history.

IPEG, housed at the Ciutadella Campus, is the result of the joint collaboration of “La Caixa” Foundation, the Government of Catalonia and has received the institutional support of Universitat Pompeu Fabra and the Barcelona Graduate School of Economics.
