Institute Français des Relations Internationales (IFRI)


Ifri is the only French institution ranked 3rd among the 100 most influential think tanks in the world behind the Brookings Institution (United States) and Chatham House (United Kingdom), according to the University of Pennsylvania’s “Global Think Tank Report 2016” which reviewed 6,486 think tanks from 182 countries. Founded in 1979 on the model of Anglo-Saxon think thanks, Ifri is the principal institution for independent research and debate in France that is dedicated to the analysis of international affairs and global governance. Ifri’s policy-oriented research strives to illuminate international events and put them in perspective. It is primarily useful for political and economic decision-makers as well as academics, opinion leaders, and civil society representatives.
