The Institute for Federalism and Intergovernmental Relations (IFIR) is dedicated to basic and applied research dealing with the relationships among governments and their organization in federal structures.

One of IFIR’s goals is to encourage and support the research activities of faculty and students at our home institutions. IFIR also seeks to engage the broader community of scholars and policymakers with shared interests in federalism and intergovernmental relations.
