The CESifo DICE Report is a quarterly, English-language journal featuring articles on institutional regulations and economic policy measures that offer country comparative analyses. Together with the CESifo DICE Database (Database for Institutional Comparisons in Europe), the CESifo DICE Report offers a detailed overview of institutions and international comparison.

The CESifo DICE Report offers a forum for the discussion of institutional questions. Its authors are internationally renowned experts from universities and economic research institutes, as well as from non-academic institutions like central banks and private companies. With its professional, but highly accessible articles, the report is aimed at journalists, decision-makers in politics and business, as well as researchers in academia.

The CESifo DICE Report is divided into various sections. The “Forum” section of every issue examines an institutional issue from various points of view. The “Research Reports” section features recent research into the design and impact of various institutions. Projects and models for institutional reform can be found in the “Reform Models” section. A selection of new entries to the DICE Databank are described and analysed in a more detailed perspective in the “Database” section. Finally, the “News” section offers information on new entries to the DICE database, forthcoming conferences and the latest book publications on institutional regulations.
