IPSA established the International Economic Development Program (IEDP) in 1999. The IEDP is a unique opportunity to examine the policies of a particular country. IEDP participants engage in a seven week, 2-credit course extensively studying the country of choice and then travel to the country over spring break. During the trip, IEDP students conduct extensive interviews and discussions with policymakers, members of civil society (non-profit managers, human rights groups, etc.), foreign development agencies, and university students.
