Focus topic

Main Research Area:

Every year, the Liechtenstein Institute conducts in-depth analyses on a specific economic issue related to the development of the economy and growth in Liechtenstein. The Liechtenstein Institute selects the focus topic in consultation with the Government. These analyses are either published as a longer study or throughout the year in shorter papers in German or English on a case-by-case basis.


The primary focus of the focus topic in 2021 was sensitivity analyses of the Liechtenstein economy; this will also be pursued in 2022 as part of the focus topic. In 2020, the focus topic was the immediate impact of the Corona pandemic on Liechtenstein’s economy.


The focus topic is a module of «Applied Economic Analysis», which is supported by the Government of the Principality of Liechtenstein.
