Why join the International Relations Council?
Apolitical, nonpartisan organizations like the IRC are uniquely poised to temper the polarization and heal the divisions we see every day. We create opportunities for informed civil discourse. We foster skills like active listening, critical thinking, empathy, and media literacy. Skills that have the power to heal social fabric and our connections with each other. How can we do international relations, after all, if we can’t do interpersonal relations?
The IRC is unique among membership organizations. Our shared interest in and curiosity about the world brings us together. Where else can you find students alongside retirees, working professionals alongside gap-year travelers, community leaders alongside interested members of the community? At the IRC, you can find all of these, along with a place for you.
