IREX Europe is a non-profit, non-governmental organisation providing innovative programmes to improve the quality of education, strengthen independent media, foster pluralistic civil society development, and reduce conflict. The IREX Europe approach emphasizes partnerships with local development organisations to expand capacity, build sustainable institutions and affect change through training, partnerships, education, research and grant programmes.
IREX Europe, registered as an association in France, has an average annual turn-over of €1.5 million with funding support from multiple donors, including the EU, United Nations, and the British, Czech, and US governments. We also work closely with our network partner the International Research & Exchanges Board (IREX), a US non-governmental organisation. IREX Europe has worked in more than 37 countries for the benefit of people striving to live in fairer, freer and more prosperous societies.
IREX Europe assists in the development of nations and peoples by providing services, programs, infrastructure and technologies that improve the quality of education, strengthen independent media, foster pluralistic civil society development, and reduce conflict.
