IFRI is a nonpartisan center with the dual purpose of studying major foreign policy issues and encouraging intellectual debate, international cooperation, and interaction in an unofficial setting. As both a research center and a forum for meetings and debate, IFRI's field of study and action comprehensively covers the political, economic, and strategic dimensions of international relations. IFRI assembles a continually updated stock of information and documentation and aims to improve people's understanding of an increasingly complex environment and provide a basis for more informed decision-making. The institute helps sensitize French society to international problems by fostering dialogue between business, political, civil service, academic, student, and media circles and presents and explains French debates and policies to interested foreigners.
