Why support the IIRE?

Our Institute was founded by Ernest Mandel in 1982 and has been very active since then. For over three decades, the IIRE has been organising educational courses, seminars and debates, aimed at social and political activists from all around the world.

A unique space for education

In our regular education courses, activists from across the globe come together. These courses are extremely useful for our participants, giving them tools to understand a changing world and change it for the better. Participants have described the schools as 'very rich and important places' to 'form an internationalist perspective' and as a valuable opportunity to learn from 'struggles of the peoples from around the globe'.

We also several books each year, ranging from reprints of classical texts to original works on topics ranging from economic analysis to feminist theory.

Our work has taken on a new urgency in the last years. Global events like economic recessions, anti-austerity protests, and the ecological crisis pose new questions for activists and demand that we come together to think and to act. The IIRE is an excellent platform for this – but to make the most of the opportunities we have, we need your help.

We are looking for people who can commit to supporting us with donations. Monthly donations are especially welcome. Please contribute and help to spread the campaign!

What will the money be used for?

Monthly donations help ensure the long-term financial sustainability of the IIRE, enabling the staff to further develop our effort to renew Marxist thought through seminars and schools, educating new generations of activists and continuing and expanding our publication line.

Please contact us if you have any questions. You are of course welcome to visit us at the IIRE and discuss our different activities and possibilities.

Regular donations are especially welcome. By donating 25 euro per month, you will receive a free subscription to all the IIRE publications series, as well as a copy of our most recently published books.
