IBEI Research programmes

IBEI's research programmes aim to produce new scientific knowledge, preferably knowledge of a general kind. It also intends to disseminate this by means of the publication of its researchers' contributions in the international academic community's usual channels. Our goal is to define certain research programmes that are both attractive and flexible enough to allow the integration of different viewpoints, avoiding concentration on specific disciplines and/or very precise theoretical problems and study areas. The aim is to seek complementarities with the research carried out at the universities linked to IBEI, while also identifying areas in which there may be major potential for achieving high levels of quality and opportunity in the future.

The research programmes are structured around relevent matters with a transversal nature in the international sphere. It includes a theoretical focus and considers the dynamics of actors and institutions from a general viewpoint as well as the relationship between domestic problems and the global scenario. Therefore, the research programmes are not grouped according to regional areas, but are structured to include interdisciplinary themes and concerns; the aim of this is to facilitate dialogue and joint reflection among researchers.

With the intention of setting up strong research programmes, IBEI dedicates particular attention to all those matters related to existing challenges to the construction of a more balanced international system with a more multipolar structure. The lines of research for tackling these matters are broad-based and capable of covering different subject matters. In this regard, three specific research programmes to be run by the IBEI in the next few years are proposed.
