Policy Briefs

IHS Policy Briefs are aimed at a broad target audience. They result from current research activities at the Institute and provide practice-oriented recommendations for political decision-makers, but also offer comprehensible background information for the media and the interested public.

Policy Briefs also highlight the broad interdisciplinary research at the IHS. They deal, for instance, with the social and economic effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Austrian tax system, the regulation of urban transport or the challenges facing education policy - to name but a few.
