IFIR research is disseminated through publications, including the
IFIR working paper series. Many of these papers are later published
in professional journals or books.
An IFIR conference on "New Directions
in Fiscal Federalism", held in September, 2006, and co-sponsored
by CESifo of Munich, Germany, has
led to the publication of special issues of two academic journals. A
selection of papers based on conference keynote addresses was
published in the December, 2007 issue of CESifo Economic
Studies. Read this introductory
essay, written by the conference co-organizers, Thiess Buettner
and David Wildasin, to learn more about this special issue and the
articles that it contains. In addition, the December, 2008 issue of
of Public Economics contains a collection of the
contributed papers that were presented at the conference. This
special issue, edited by Robin Boadway, Thiess Buettner, and David
Wildasin, includes an introductory essay that outlines
