Who are we?

The Institute of Empirical Research in Political Economy (IERPE or IREEP in French) was launched on January 7, 2004 by Professor Léonard Wantchékon (Princeton University). Over the years IERPE evolved into the African School of Economics and currently is one of the research institutes that integrate the School.

IERPE is a not-for-profit institution that specialises in empirical research in the  evaluation of public policy.
