    Aims and Scope


    International Review of Economics - Journal of Civil Economy (IREC) covers a broad range of macro- and microeconomic topics, and showcases high-quality empirical, theoretical and policy-oriented contributions. In particular, IREC welcomes papers focused on the analysis of social interactions, wellbeing, welfare and happiness, capabilities, reciprocity, trust, relational goods, formal and informal institutions, law and economics, prizes and incentives, economics and philosophy, economic theology, the history of economic thought, non-profit organizations, and social economy. Civil Economy refers to a 18th-century Southern European tradition, which views the market as a pre-condition for civilization. Today, Civil Economy denotes a special focus on the ‘civil’ and ethical dimensions of economic issues, and on pursuing the common good in the economic domain.
