IACR – The International Association for Critical Realism

The International Association for Critical Realism was established in 1997 with the basic objective of serving as a networking or otherwise facilitating resource for anyone broadly sympathetic to, or concerned with, realist philosophy and social theory. Given the current crises in the social sciences and philosophy, it was widely felt that such a resource is urgently needed. To this end IACR intends, amongst other things, to facilitate annual conferences (both within Europe and in other parts of the world) and to organise or help co-ordinate and publicise lectures, seminars, workshops, summer schools and related events concerned in any way with realist philosophy and social theory. It also hopes to facilitate related research projects.
