Working Groups

Working Groups form the backbone of IIPPE. The groups are at various stages of development, with each running itself subject to conforming to the broader IIPPE aims. So far, activities that have been organised by IIPPE working groups include workshops, panels at conferences, online debates, and exchange of literature and other resources. The IIPPE working groups have brought together researchers from across disciplines, institutions and countries. A number of working groups are planning working paper series and other collaborative work. IIPPE is looking to expand the diversity and scope of the working groups, and we welcome suggestions and offers to organise new working groups, as well as collaboration with other working groups from outside the initiative. Those interested in this should contact individual working groups or, for more general inquiries and for those interested in setting up new groups, please contact the overall coordinator of the working groups, Bruno Bonizzi.
