The Kiel Institute is an international center for research in global economic affairs, economic policy consulting, and economic education.

The Institute engages especially in creating solutions to urgent problems in global economic affairs. On basis of its research, the Institute advises decision makers in policy, business, and society and informs the broader public about important developments in international economic policy. As a portal to research in global economic affairs, the Kiel Institute has established a network of International Research Fellows that supports the worldwide awareness of the Institute’s activities and gives additional research impulses in form of scientific advice, joint research, and teaching stays in Kiel. The Institute lays a special focus on economic education and closely cooperates with the world’s largest library in economic and social sciences.

The Kiel Institute is a member of the Wissenschaftsgemeinschaft Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz (WGL), which unites institutes and service providers of supraregional importance. Since January 1, 2007 the Kiel Institute for the World Economy is an independent foundation under public law of the federal state of Schleswig-Holstein.
