HEIRC is dedicated to raising awareness of international relations, world diplomacy, and economic and cultural development. We organize topnotch conferences and panel discussions featuring leading scholars, diplomats, and politicians, both at Harvard and afield. These events are meant to educate club members, Harvard students, and the surrounding community on contemporary international topics. Our goal is to enable dialogue amongst students and scholars through a unique blend of educational and social events that inspire engagement in world affairs and promote a deeper understanding of historical contexts.


Beyond being a unique learning experience, our vision is to empower the student community and to enhance opportunities for social involvement. We encourage networking as a way to build stronger ties to the school, to other students, and to professors. In learning about international affairs, we learn about how and where we can contribute in a globalized world.
