The IAFOR Research Centre (IRC)
The IAFOR Research Centre (IRC) is a thinktank attached to the Osaka School of International Public Policy (OSIPP), a graduate school of Osaka University devoted to international public policy research and education, in collaborative partnership with the International Academic Forum (IAFOR), an interdisciplinary academic conference organiser. It is a hybrid organisation that encourages interdisciplinary research and dialogue on issues of international and regional relevance. Education and capacity building for future leaders and public policy experts are priority at OSIPP, and facilitating cross-border research collaboration and interdisciplinary intellectual discussions are priorities for IAFOR, and the IRC is a place for cross-fertilisation of the two institutions’ objectives. As such, the IRC encourages graduate and postgraduate students to take initiative in designing and running research projects, participate in international conferences, and produce incisive commentaries and analyses on international affairs.
