In an increasingly condensed and rapidly changing world, ifa offers research-based knowledge at the interface of culture and foreign policy. In so doing, ifa strives to discuss and document international cultural relations and cultural aspects of global structural change. The aim is to scientifically accompany foreign cultural policy, to develop new concepts of dialogue between science, culture, politics and the media, and to make visible the potentials that think tanks, the politically active, scientists, libraries and interested parties have to offer.
Special emphasis is placed upon:
The International Cultural Relations Research Alliance (ICRRA) network, which is currently being set up, brings together international and scholarly institutions on the initiative of the ifa, which sees itself as a bridge builder between practical cultural work, scholarly reflection, policy advice and the media.
Beginning in 2020, the publication series 'Culture and Foreign Policy', founded by the ifa and the publisher Nomos Verlag, will feature dissertations, scholarly studies and collections of articles that examine issues at the interface between culture and foreign policy.
The Research Programme 'Culture and Foreign Policy' supports the Foreign Cultural and Educational Policy scientifically, provides impulses for foreign cultural policy measures and connects cultural actors to AKBP issues.
The Research Programme Martin Roth Initiative accompanies the protection initiative programme and contributes to the documentation of the impact of protection programmes in general.
