Founded in 2012, the Institute for Cultural Relations Policy (ICRP) is a non-governmental and non-profit organisation fostering scientific education and public discourse regarding cultural relations policy. The institution is officially run by Kulturalis Kapcsolatokert Alapitvany, based in Budapest, Hungary. The ICRP focuses on global intercultural dialogue, the promotion and protection of International Human Rights, the recognition of cultural diversity and religious and minority issues. Moreover, the ICRP puts a great emphasis on the professional development of young generations by conducting an internationally known and popular Internship Programme and regularly organising different trainings and workshops. The foundation has offices in Finland, Georgia, Turkey, Ukraine and Mali with similar structure, aims and objectives as the ICRP Budapest has.
The ICRP has vast experience in intercultural learning. The institute has been actively participating in the Erasmus+ programme (before 2014 in the Youth in Action programme) both as partner organisation and applicant. Since 2014, we have been involved in nearly 150 projects as partner organisation.
ICRP focuses on global intercultural dialogue and forms of cooperation between intra-cultural entities, aiming to promote the protection of International Human Rights and recognition of cultural diversity and heritage in an interdependent world.
Our activity also covers organising workshops and talk series, international conferences and other international events.
The ICRP publishes regularly its monthly magazine titled Cultural Relations Policy News & Background and its quarterly review on International Relations, Political Science and Economics. In addition, the ICRP’s Human Rights Issues Series is dedicated to international human rights protection and conflict resolution.
