Since February 2013, the IR program has made its home at the Liu Institute for Global Issues. Named after Dr. Jieh Jow Liou, the Liu Institute conducts and facilitates research on global issues, mobilizing knowledge into solutions and policy. Its current focus is on advancing sustainability, security, and social justice: understood as moving toward economic, social, and environmental interactions that promote the well-being of people in ways that are just, equitable, and sustainable.
IR students and the broader UBC community can also book space for events and meetings at the Liu Institute. For more information on space booking, please click here.
