About IIPF

The International Institute of Public Finance (IIPF) is the world organization of public finance economists and has over 700 members from over 50 countries. In an increasingly specialized academic field, the IIPF seeks to generate intellectual interchanges among public finance experts.

The Institute’s annual congress is the main forum for its activities, which include organizing academic events, promoting the exchange of knowledge between academics and practitioners of all nationalities, and awarding prizes for outstanding academic achievements.

The congress also provides an opportunity for the IIPF governing bodies to convene (Board of Management, General Assembly of Members). The IIPF is currently administered by an Executive Committee consisting of President Joel Slemrod (University of Michigan, US) and two Vice Presidents, Clemens Fuest (Ifo Institute and University of Munich, Germany) and Monika Bütler (University of St. Gallen, Switzerland). The legal and administrative seat of the non-profit organization IIPF is in Munich, Germany.
