About Us

E-International Relations (E-IR) is the world’s leading open access website for students and scholars of international politics, featuring high quality scholarly content and student-facing resources. The website was established in November 2007, and is recommended by leading academics and practitioners from around the world. We have a growing audience, reaching almost 3 million unique readers in 2015.

In addition to maintaining the website, E-International Relations produces a range of open access books. All of which are available in book stores worldwide, and are downloadable for free on E-IR.

E-IR is owned and operated by a UK registered non-profit organisation and is based in Bristol, UK.
