About LIRDS Think Tank Group. 

LIRDS Think Tank Group focuses on law, international relations, research, defence, and security.

LIRDS was established in December 2013. It is an independent non-profit and nonpartisan think tank group. Our goal is to examine and explain through academic research, national, regional and hemispheric phenomena from an International Relations (IR) perspective (theories, framework, concepts) with the aim of influencing policy formulation and implementation.

We will provide a forum for online academic discourse, conduct research, host academic seminars, provide online discussions on published papers, publish reviewed articles, and collaborate with other academic institutions to bring the discourse and perspectives closer to the day-to-day practitioners.
