The IRIS Discussion Papers are based on IRIS research and technical assistance. The series includes papers that have been subjected to only informal internal review.
The IRIS E-Journal of Institutions and Development is a publication with articles distinguished from the Discussion Papers by having been subjected to outside peer review. Typically, paper submissions are updated versions of those previously issued as IRIS Discussion Papers. (forthcoming)
