Welcome to the Internet site of the Institute IRSA

The Institute for Developmental and Strategic Analysis ('IRSA') is a private, non-profit research institution, oriented to the academic research as well as to the policy relevant studies specific for the "think-tank" organizations.

IRSA was founded in Ljubljana on 20 December 2004. It was established as a small and mobile research unit oriented to perform basic, applied projects and expertise in certain fields of social sciences and (partially) the humanities.

IRSA seeks to include young, promising and ambitious researchers in its work and helps them develop into social science researchers with an interdisciplinary scientific vocation. IRSA is oriented towards the international academic environment and includes in its projects and publications social scientists from other countries. Apart from being present in the international scientific community, members of the Institute are also present in local (national) research and cultural space where they advocate an open (knowledge-based) society and public discussion of actual aspects and problems of social development and civil society.
