Welcome to the Institute for Cultural Research:
Ideas, information and understanding between cultures.

The Institute for Cultural Research is an educational charity which aims to stimulate study, debate, education and research into all aspects of human thought, behaviour and culture.

We hold regular lectures and seminars, publish books and papers and support projects in parts of the world where education and the free flow of ideas are under threat. All our activities are available to the public.
