WE ARE A RESEARCH, CONTENT AND NETWORKING POWERHOUSE At IE University, we are committed to research and innovation to keep ourselves on the cutting edge.

Centers and initiatives

IE School of Global and Public Affairs is committed to excellence in research and innovation, and works constantly to further its position as a leader in international affairs. Its faculty has published many books, journal articles, case studies and papers.

IE School of Global and Public Affairs is working to develop research centers that will strengthen the school’s academic offerings by producing high-quality research and generating international networks of experts that can be be leveraged to enhance the quality of our teaching.

The centers will be funded by public and private donors and will produce both academic and non-academic publications, in addition to offering fellowships and hosting events. They will also act as international hubs for practitioners and researchers, and as anchors for partnerships with top-tier institutions such as MIT, Harvard University and the Atlantic Council.

Center for the Governance of Change

The Center seeks to improve our ability to anticipate, manage and foster change in its different forms, across a variety of domains: political, economic and social.

The world is changing at a faster rate than ever in ways never experienced before by humankind. As a result, governments, companies and societies must learn to adapt at the same pace.

To aid in this process, we are creating the Center for the Governance of Change, a research institution that will enhance our ability to anticipate, manage and foster change. It will be based at IE School of Global and Public Affairs in Madrid.

TRANSATLANTIC RELATIONS INITIATIVE

This initiative aims to strengthen research and teaching on transatlantic issues, particularly social, economic, political, security and environmental challenges in Europe and North America.

Cooperation among Western democracies and markets is becoming increasingly crucial when it comes to international economic and security issues. The European politics of today often fail to focus on transatlantic relations, despite their relevance to global challenges such as democratization, terrorism, trade, or the drug trade. IE’s Transatlantic Relations Initiative fosters both applied and interdisciplinary work on these issues.
