EFSAS is pleased to announce its cooperation with IRSP (International Research by Students Programme)
Based at the University of Groningen, IRSP is a student-run research group that enables ambitious undergraduate- and graduate students of International Relations to gain practical experience in the workfield of international politics. In this context, IRSP researchers have cooperated extensively with prestigious institutions such as the Dutch Defence Ministry, the Dutch Foreign Ministry and the International Criminal Court. The joint research by EFSAS and IRSP will focus especially on the long-term trends shaping the South Asian region in the coming decades, also in consideration of China's Belt and Road Initiative. Particular emphasis will be put on regional trends in the realms of environmental issues, public health, social development, trade and security.
