The Institute for International Cultural Relations (IICR) was established in 2013 and is today situated in the School of Social and Political Science in the College of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences at the University of Edinburgh.

With a globally renowned faculty, IICR acts as a catalyst for interdisciplinary scholarship across the whole University, and as a bridge to practice. It also aims to connect with an internationally and inter-culturally diverse array of real-world communities, to help them face the many practical challenges they are confronted with today.

Direct engagement and partnerships with external decision-maker, policy and practitioner communities are a unique strength of the IICR's educational and research programmes.
