Impact Stories

The interagency institute was built as a collective of expat women PhD researchers. We publish 2 Policy Briefs per month (a total of 65 already published). We were involved in important international events such as the Fundamental Rights Forum, Humanitarian Partnerships Weeks, and OC24h Conference on Global Organized Crime. We have made advocacy at the UNODC and participate into the SE4U initiative. We are focused on connecting the Global South (Portuguese and Spanish Speaking Countries), and inter-agency cooperation enhacement. 

Organization's mission

The InterAgency Institute was established in December 2020 as a digital think tank, founded by expatriate and Global South women as a collective of researchers. The IA is driven by the goal of working on behalf of human security in two dimensions: local development and global security.
