Welcome to the International Economic Association

The IEA is the international federation of national economic associations, formed by a core group of academics, scholars and distinguished economists, from developed and developing countries. The IEA was founded in 1950 as a non-governmental organization, with the aim to promote personal contacts and mutual understanding among economists in different parts of the world through the organization of scientific meetings, common research programs and by means of publications of an international character on economic policies and problems of current importance.

"In the climate of the immediate post-war world, there was a wide spread desire to bring not only nations, but also particular academic and professional groups within nations closer together to increase international understanding by increasing international contacts."
Sir Austin Robinson, IEA President 1959 - 1962
