We place the Kurds and Kurdistan at the centre of our research and teaching activities, while valuing a strong grounding in different academic disciplines. We focus particularly on issues of ethnicity, ethnic conflict, cultural production, and memory. We were established in 2006 thanks to generous funding by the Ibrahim Ahmad Foundation and the Prime Minister of the Kurdistan Regional Government, HE Nechirvan Barzani.
