Research Areas

Research ProfileTeaching and research activities of the Institute constitute two interrelated fields of activity which reinforce each other in their development. The studies which are published by employees of the Institute are used by students for learning purposes. Classes for students and the educational requirements in the field of international relations stimulate further research.

Institute is also founder of the Polish Association for International Studies. PAIS will co-organize with Institute and Standing Group on International Relations international 8th Pan-European Conference on International Relations, ‘One International Relations or Many? Multiple Worlds, Multiple crises” 18-21 September 2013.

The research activities carried out at the Institute of International Relations refer to the long-lasting tradition of this discipline, whose academic status became fully recognized at American universities after the Second World War.
