CESifo DICE Report is a quarterly English-language journal with articles on institutional regulations and economic-policy measures using a country-comparative approach. The word “DICE” refers to our free access “Database for Institutional Comparisons in Europe”.

The CESifo DICE Report comments on new entries to the database and offers a forum for the discussion of institutional topics among researchers from the Ifo Institute, the CESifo research network and other economic research institutions. The journal provides information relevant for economic debate without seeking to be an academic journal. The presentations are aimed at journalists, policy-makers and members of the business community as well as academic economists.

The journal has different sections. In the “Forum” section a specific institutional question is considered from different points of view. Under “Research Reports” the reader finds various topics treated by scholars interested in the design and the effects of institutions. Institutional reform projects are presented under “Reform Models”. The "Database" section comments on new entries to the DICE database, placing them into a larger perspective. Under “News” we inform the reader about conferences, new information on regulations, ongoing research projects, new studies, etc.
