«Scientific knowledge will not relieve us from making difficult decisions in complex environments, but it can provide us with insights that we should factor in when making these decisions.»
Kaspar Villiger, Chairman of the Foundation Council

To help disseminate research produced by leading academics associated with the UBS International Center of Economics in Society, the UBS Center runs two distinct publication series.

The Policy Brief Series' main aim is to promote research-based policy analysis by leading economists at the University of Zurich. The main target audience consists of economists working in the public sector, private sector, academia and media – as well as students of economics in the broad sense.

The Public Paper Series makes research on topics of key societal relevance available to a broader audience in a simplified, compact and highly readable format.
