The International Economy

The International Economy program aims to explain developments in the international economy, and influence policy. It does so by undertaking independent analytical research.

The International Economy program contributes to the Lowy Institute’s core publications: policy briefs and policy analyses. For example, the program contributed the Lowy Institute Paper, John Edwards’ Beyond the Boom, which argued that Australia’s transition away from the commodities boom will be quite smooth.

The program hosts economy-focused events, and economy-focused blog posts can be found on The Interpreter. For updates on publications and events, follow @leonberkelmans and @tris_sainsbury on Twitter.
