Welcome to the International Relations Council.
A Kansas City nonprofit organization and a member of the World Affairs Councils of America, the IRC works in partnership with businesses, universities, community organizations, and K-12 schools to bring a global perspective to our community. We bring world leaders and dignitaries to the metro region, host forums for high-school students to interact with and learn from foreign-policy experts, and create opportunities for area business leaders to strengthen relationships abroad. We invite you to join us for an upcoming event and see how you can get involved with Kansas City's global community.
