Center for the History of International Relations
“Alexandru Ioan Cuza” University of Iași
Welcome to the school of answers to world’s great questions! These are questions that have been at the forefront of all crucial moments of mankind. And the most tense ones developed not so much in the internal life of states, as in the relations between them, up to the level of violent confrontations. From the war entanglements, as well as from the peace almost invariably imposed by the winners on the losers, certain reasonings could be drawn, but aslo unfathomable experiences. And they were all passed to our days, inherently fomenting historical works.
The fundamental mission of the Center is to coagulate the capabilities available in the academia in order to develop solid educational and research programs meant to form future specialists. The Center seeks to act as a link between the academia and the various governmental or non-governmental structures.
The Center for the History of International Relations functions as a department of the Faculty of History within the “Alexandru Ioan Cuza” University of Iași. It offers educational (interdisciplinary MA courses) and research programs focused on the scientific understanding of the history of the international institutions, organisms and relations during the modern and contemporary eras. The Center trains future specialists, publishes specialised works, and gathers a research collective, with possibilities to assimilate the new methodological directions and to access unpublished historical sources.
