International Cultural Relation (ICR) Research 

ICR Research builds on a unique range of expertise, experience, skills, and a global network of experts all committed to a cultural relations approach of dialogue and cooperation. It works across all aspects of the theory and practice of international relations: foreign policy and diplomacy;  multi-stakeholder collaboration; global civil society; transnational networks, and the informal social, cultural and individual relationships that share knowledge and drive change in the interconnected world.
