Higher Institute of International Relations


Mozambique’s leading institution of excellence in international relations and diplomacy

Higher education quality has become a key requirement for education institutions in the context of a free market system. Functioning in an environment marked by an imbalance between public demand to access higher education and its real capacity, the policies and mechanisms of assuring quality are the necessary tools to sustain the historical ISRI’s status of excellence.
