Seminar meeting with students seated around a long table

IPC covers three research domains:

  • International economic development
  • International security
  • Human rights

The IPC team organizes research-focused events throughout the academic year. Our workshops and conferences, including the North American Colloquium, foster academic exchange and collaboration among subject matter experts and scholars. We also maintain active research seminar series, including the Ford Security Seminar and Economic Development Seminar.

North American Colloquium

A collaborative effort of the Ford School's International Policy Center, in partnership with the University of Toronto's Munk School and the National Autonomous University of Mexico's Center for North American Research, to bring together scholars, policymakers, and students from all three North American countries. NAC seeks to strengthen policy conversation and contribute to trilateral cooperation between the U.S., Canada, and Mexico. (Photo credit: U.S. Department of Labor / CC0).
