What is the Institute for Fiscal Studies (IFS)?

The IFS is Europe’s leading centre of microeconomic policy research, established as an authoritative commentator on the public finances, tax and welfare policy, tax law, education, inequality and poverty, pensions, productivity and innovation, consumer behaviour and, more recently, the evaluation of policies designed to promote development in poorer countries. It is a politically independent registered charity aiming to bridge the gap between policymakers and academics.

The IFS aims to bridge the gap between purely academic research and issues of practical policy design or evaluation. The Institute strives to be at the forefront of UK and international research in its chosen fields, but also places a high priority on the policy relevance and communication of its research.

  • an interest in economics

  • an interest in how empirical evidence can inform and improve public policy
