About this grant

The Institute for Policy Studies works in collaboration with nongovernmental organizations, academics, parliamentarians, and other stakeholders to develop alternative proposals for the future of the global economy based on environmental sustainability, democracy, and economic fairness. This grant increase will support policy research on national and global responses to the economic crisis, with a particular focus on the role of financial transaction taxes, excess concentration of the financial industry, and derivatives reform.
