Annual Conference on International Institutions

The conference is held annually in November and lasts three days. Invited speakers and scientists submit papers and present the latest results of their research work. The selected papers are published as a book in a series called "Innsbruck Publications on International Institutions and Global Governance".

Within the framework of the Innsbruck Conference on International Institutions the Boehm-Bawerk-Lectures, which are financed by the Tiroler Sparkasse Bank, are held each year. Renown scientists are invited to give a lecture. These contributions are published in a special publication series – the "Innsbruck Lectures on International Institutions".

The conference is also part of a course for graduate students called "International Institutions" which is offered each semester jointly by the CSI and the Leopold-Franzens University of Innsbruck (course information).
