Objectives
 
Institute for Regional Studies (IRS) as an academic think tank of Shahid Beheshti University is going to engage the academicians and practitioners to study the regional integration in the foreign policy of the Islamic republic of Iran. RSRI was established in 2015 with three departments – Islamic Studies and Iran’s Foreign Policy, Western Regional Studies, and Eastern Regional Studies. Our leading objective is to improve the linkage between the decision-making apparatus and the university on the Iranian regional policy in the ongoing, emerging, and complexing world. In our globalized world, the understanding of the world trends and acquiring the common experiences need to be monitored and interpreted meticulously by means of futures studies.
