International Network for Research on Asset Policies (INRAP)

International Network on Research on Asset Policies (INRAP)

"INRAP brings together for the first time, academics, policymakers, research centres and networks, working within the broad area of 'asset-based' policies."

What is INRAP?

The International Network for Research on Asset Policies (INRAP) aims to bring together researchers in academia, policy and practice, working in, or with an interest in, personal assets.

Our definition of 'assets' is quite broad, encompassing housing, pensions, and financial savings. We are also interested in wealth taxation.

We believe INRAP is timely given the pressure on national governments that have 'experimented' in developing 'asset-based' policies and are under pressure to reduce public spending.

INRAP is based within the Centre on Household Assets and Savings Management (CHASM). CHASM is a research centre based jointly in the School of Social Policy and the Birmingham Business School.
