The International Institute for Research and Education (IIRE) is a research and educational centre based in Amsterdam, Netherlands. It conducts training and publishes research for and by progressive activists around the world.[citation needed]

The Institute was established in Brussels in 1982 by Royal Charter. It relocated to Amsterdam in the late 1980s.[citation needed]

The IIRE is often associated with the ideas of two of its founding Fellows.[citation needed] Ernest Mandel and Livio Maitan were leaders of the Fourth International in the decades after the Second World War. Their writings have both been published by the Institute. After Mandel's death the IIRE was selected to house the Ernest Mandel Study Centre, which opened in 1995.

In 2006, the IIRE moved out from its old premises near Vondelpark. The new premises, in Zeeburg were inaugurated in September 2007.[1]
