IEA, International Economic Association

The International Economic Association (IEA) has been a member since 1952.

The IEA was founded in 1950 as a non-governmental organization, at the instigation of the Social Sciences Department of UNESCO. Its aim from the beginning has been to promote personal contacts and mutual understanding among economists in different parts of the world through the organization of scientific meetings, through common research programmes and by means of publications of an international character on problems of current importance.
