Institute of World Economy and International Relations

The *Institute of World Economy and International Relations of the Russian Academy of Sciences* (IMEMO RAN) was established in 1956 and it is the successor to the Institute of World Economy and International Affairs, which existed from 1925 to 1948. Soon after the establishment, the Institute gained the reputation of an important centre of integrated fundamental and applied socio-economic, political and policy-oriented research on the analysis of the main trends of world development; and the Institute is unique in this way in our country. As time went by, the Institute gave birth to a series of problem-regional research institutions - the Institute for the USA and Canadian Studies, the Institute for African Studies, the Institute of the International Labor Movement, etc. However, IMEMO still remains one-of-a-kind in terms of the scale and complexity of the research on the scientific issues by the analytical center.
