This year's IPE will be held January 11-12, 2019.

The Integrated Policy Exercise provides students with a week long opportunity to work intensively on a policy issue. All students participate as part of a team representing different constituencies with an interest in the problem being studied. Working in groups of 7 to 10, students are assigned a role such as lobbying firm or political operative, or economic group. Groups prepare a political strategy to achieve their clients' objectives and to develop policy positions for their group. The week culminates in a negotiation process among all the groups involved. Topics vary each year.
