MISSION, GOALS AND OBJECTIVES

The Academic Network in International Relations (ANIR) is an initiative created to facilitate cooperation between regional universities, research institutes, and professional associations through training and research activities. It is a center for developing projects in teaching and research, a forum for debate and exchange of experiences, and a rich source of information for all who are teaching, researching, and studying international relations in universities throughout the region. Its goal is to create and develop a network of scholars interested in developing international relations as an academic discipline throughout the region.

The Objectives of the Project:

  • to involve promising scholars as the core of the network and give them the tools to develop as educators and scholars;
  • to attract a wider group of scholars to the network’s activities in order to build links among departments of international relations in the region;
  • to promote new approaches to teaching and research methodologies;
  • to support the activities of ANIR Working Research Groups (Identity Group; Culture of Peace Group; International Relations History Group; European Integration Group; Contemporary International Relations; Theory and Practice; and Security Issues Group) in developing cross-regional research projects; and
  • to organize and promote activities aimed at students in international relations to help them become researchers, lecturers, and diplomats.

We hope that ANIR will serve as a long-term action plan to promote international relations by facilitating contacts among scholars and practitioners of the discipline in Central and Eastern Europe and Eurasia.
