Think tank

IVO is the research institute of Tilburg University and maintains a strong relationship with it, as reflected in its joint research program. Its mission is to carry out applied socio-economic research to contribute to poverty alleviation. The institute was established in recognition of social responsibility, and poverty in the decolonizing regions of the world is seen as the most important social question of its time and in need of academic research. The cornerstones of IVO's research are global commodity chains and development, institutional impact analysis, and macro accounting for policy analysis. In its research, IVO attempts to address three basic issues: poverty, income distribution, and globalization. IVO has established geographic and strategic alliances with a number of partner organizations in developing countries, and to strengthen its alliances and research capacity IVO provides academic guidance and facilities to a number of international Ph.D. students.
