The main goal of the IBEI Working Papers series is to disseminate academic documents representing work in progress, such as literature reviews, papers to be presented at conferences, first versions of articles or seminar drafts. The IBEI Working Papers series provides a medium for the early publication of those projects that are still underway.

The Writing Board of the IBEI Working Papers is constituted by the members of IBEI's Scientific Board. The IBEI Working Papers editors are Prof. Juan Díez Medrano (Universidad Carlos III de Madrid - IBEI) and Prof. Caterina García (Universitat Pompeu Fabra).
