Oxford International Relations Society is one of the most active and dynamic societies at Oxford University. Its remit is to educate the students of Oxford about the opportunities and challenges in global affairs, including international law. Our events are widely anticipated as highlights of Oxford University’s calendar and we are building an exceptional reputation among our members and throughout the wider student body.
International relations is a political science concerning the study of the interactions between agents regarding foreign affairs and global issues in the context of the international system and involves a significant overlap between public policy and academia. It encompasses the roles of states, non-governmental organizations, inter-governmental organizations, and multinational corporations, tackling topics such as globalisation, economic development and global finance, state sovereignty and nationalism, terrorism and organised crime, ecological sustainability, nuclear proliferation, human security, foreign interventionism, and human rights.
With this in mind, International Relations Society has been an exciting and dynamic addition to the Oxford University society scene. Uniting expert speakers, sophisticated socials and lively debate, we constantly aim to engage our members at the forefront of global issues.
