The Interdiciplinary research centre on international studies (CRII) provides a venue for interdisciplinary research on the ‘international’ that brings together staff members of several departments of the Faculty of Social and Political Sciences of the University of Lausanne. It offers a platform for moving beyond established disciplines and reinforcing intellectual collaboration in Switzerland and abroad.
The purpose of the CRII:
- To provide a platform for interdisciplinary exchanges of ideas in order to reinforce existing synergies on innovative research on the ‘international’ and support collaborative projects within the University of Lausanne and other universities in Switzerland and abroad.
- To confront theoretical approaches on the political, economic, and social interactions framing the international space.
- To promote cutting edge empirical studies on diverse international topics.
- To support and disseminate research produced on the international within and outside the Faculty of Social and Political Sciences of the University of Lausanne.
