Support the IIRE
Our Institute was founded by Ernest Mandel in 1982 and has been very active since then. For over three decades, the IIRE has been organising educational courses, seminars and debates, aimed at social and political activists from all around the world.
Recently, we made some important progress. First, we moved to a completely new building and improved our infrastructure. During the six years in our new home, hundreds of people from across the globe have attended our sessions. These sessions are extremely useful for our participants, giving them tools to understand a changing world and change it for the better. Participants have described the schools as 'very rich and important places' to 'form an internationalist perspective' and as a valuable opportunity to learn from 'struggles of the peoples from around the globe'.
We have made strong progress in our work. Our lectures are now recorded and streamed in video on our website, giving an unprecedented outreach to our activities and ideas. This way, our website is becoming a valuable activist resource that can be accessed worldwide. We have succeeded in considerably widening our publication program: we are publishing several books each year, ranging from reprints of classical texts to original works on topics ranging from economic analysis to feminist theory.
We feel our work has taken on a new urgency in the last years. Global events like the economic recession, the rise of anti-austerity protests, the ecological crisis and the Arab rebellions pose new questions for activists and demand that we come together to think and to act. The IIRE is an excellent platform for this – but to make the most of the opportunities we have, we need your help.
We are looking for people who can commit to supporting us with donations. Monthly donations are especially welcome.
We are hopeful you will consider supporting us and help spread the campaign!
