VOX: CEPR’s policy portal

CEPRVOX is an online information policy portal set up by CEPR. It operates with a Consortium of other sites, including the Italian site LaVoce, which provided inspiration for the idea and help from the start, the French site Telos, the Spanish site Sociedad Abierta, and the German Ökonomenstimme.

Vox aims to enrich the economic policy debate in Europe and beyond, and to promote the dissemination of research-based policy analysis and commentary by leading economists.

The intended audience is economists in governments, international organisations, academia and the private sector as well as journalists specialising in economics, finance and business.

The columns are organized by topic, date, reads or tag. If you choose to view the columns by topic, they are displayed in alphabetical order, showing the number of columns in each topic. The organization by date shows that the articles cover the period from March 2007 to present, and allows you to view the columns by month. The classification by reads shows you the most popular content, whereas ‘By tag’ displays the most frequently used tags, linked with the articled they are used in.
