The publications, databases and events produced by the IDB are only the end-products of a rigorous academic process. The research projects behind these outcomes can be as important as the final result in terms of their learning and networking potential. Numerous social, political and economic experts participate in the intellectual journey involved in these research projects. Their queries, critiques and contributions are valuable inputs to the process. The competition among high-level research institutes, the exchange of ideas, the development of new datasets and methodologies, and the oversight of leading academics all contribute to assuring the excellence of the IDB's research program. For this reason, it is important not only to present the fruits of the IDB's research program but to document the process involved in the research projects it conducts.
