The Social Economy, Protection and Society research program of the University of Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne
The Social Economy, Protection and Society program brings together teacher-researchers from the University of Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne on research questions and on lessons on the future of social protection. The objective is to develop this program into a university chair in order to bring together researchers, experts, professionals, policies and training on these subjects and to promote global analyzes on all social protection risks, to decompartmentalize analyzes often isolated in order to have a more transversal vision.
The Institut des politiques publique
The Institut des politiques publiques (IPP) has been created by PSE and is developed through a scientific partnership between the Paris School of Economics (PSE) and the Groupe des écoles nationales d’économie et de statistique (GENES). The aim of the IPP is to promote quantitative analysis and evaluation of public policy using cutting edge research methods in economics.
The researchers affiliated to the IPP are researchers from the Paris School of Economics and from CREST, researchers belonging to other research institutions and a permanent team dedicated to the IPP. Their work relates to themes covering a wide spectrum of public policy: tax and benefit systems, employment policies, education, health, firms, pensions, democracy and institutions, environment, housing and competition policies.
The research carried out by the IPP aims both to develop scientific research in the field of public policies and to inform the public debate. To do so, the IPP publishes its research in different formats, some aimed at academics (working papers and peer-reviewed journal) and some aimed at a wider audience (notes and reports). In addition to this, the IPP develops on-line tools to enable a larger number of people to become acquainted with public policy issues, notably the IPP tax and benefit tables.
