Research Groups

IPRI is organized according to three Research Groups and one Thematic Line.

The Research Groups – i) Globalization and Regionalism, ii) Democracy and Governance and iii) Strategic Foresight and Planning – are essentially discipline-oriented, corresponding to the Institute's main disciplinary areas, and representing the ongoing work in research, teaching and knowledge transfer.

The Thematic Line – European Union: overcoming the crisis and future challenges – on the contrary, is issue-oriented, receiving the contribution of the three Research Groups and represents the strategic priority elected by the Institute for the next six years. The Thematic Line constitutes the answer and the contribution of the Institute, in its area of expertise, to the challenges faced by contemporary societies as formulated by the EU's Horizon 2020 Programme.













The research groups are organized according to three main research topics.
