CÉRIUM, an international studies centre, has the mission to encourage greater understanding of international issues. This mission is accomplished through research, training and dissemination activities.


CÉRIUM is a multidisciplinary team of high level researchers specialized in the study of international issues. This team includes individual researchers as well as research units (centres, chairs and affiliated institutes).

The research work performed by CÉRIUM is addressed to academics and to all who are interested in the evolution of contemporary international relations. It is disseminated through scientific publications, online publications, conferences and seminars.

To widen the base of its research activities, CÉRIUM will establish partnerships with institutions at the Université de Montréal or elsewhere, for occasional events or for shared efforts.

The CÉRIUM research activities are financed through internal funds and funds from external granting organizations.


In collaboration with the faculties involved in international studies, CÉRIUM intends to encourage specialized training of high-level researchers and respond to the increasing needs for personnel qualified in international studies.

To this end, CÉRIUM will encourage the creation of research teams that bring together, around a principal researcher, junior researchers, postdoctoral fellows, and postgraduate students.

It will also participate, as needed, in the development of training programs in various fields of international studies.


CÉRIUM disseminates its knowledge and findings to civil society, business, government agencies, international institutions, etc. in order to clarify public debates and policy positions on issues of an international nature. Through conferences and seminars, it encourages exchanges between academics, decision-makers, and practitioners.
