IAI was founded on the initiative of Altiero Spinelli, its first director. IAI comprises individual and corporate members, public and private organizations, and major international foundations who also contribute to its funding. IAI's main objective is to promote an understanding of the problems of international politics through studies, research, meetings, and publications, with the aim of increasing the opportunities for all countries to move in a supranational organization, democratic freedom, and social justice direction.
