A highlight of our calendar, this year's International Affairs Conference will include a keynote by the Minister for Foreign Affairs and Trade, and Mary Robinson MRIA will provide the plenary.
The Royal Irish Academy/Acadamh Ríoga na hÉireann champions research. We identify and recognise Ireland’s world class researchers. We support scholarship and promote awareness of how science and the humanities enrich our lives and benefit society. We believe that good research needs to be promoted, sustained and communicated. The Academy is run by a Council of its members. Membership is by election and considered the highest academic honour in Ireland.Read more about the RIA
The Standing Committee for International Affairs was established in September 2014. It is a standing committee within the Academy’s Social Sciences Committee.
The committee works closely with the Academy’s publication team to produce the Irish Studies in International Affairs journal. In conjunction with this, the committee organises a one-day seminar each year to present papers on a chosen theme for the journal.
