Dear friends,

This year ICEI celebrates 40 years of unbroken work, both as research center and as international cooperation NGO. Founded in 1977 with the aim of providing information, research and debate on the major issues of international politics and development, ICEI scored a four decades continuity, which has been enriched with the start of field activities since the early 2000s. Without ever leaving the information work on the ground, we worked together with many partners in Europe and in developing countries, dealing with agriculture, responsible tourism, social cohesion, environmental protection, territorial development, labour inclusion and youth, gender, migrations.


We want to celebrate our 40th anniversary with you, proposing a series of free-entry meetings throughout the year along with Radio Popolare di Milano, the radio station also born 40 years ago and always focused on international politics.

We have defined a program for running through almost half a century of international politics.
The venue of the meetings will be the Auditorium of Radio Popolare in Via Ollearo 5 in Milan, with the exception of that of June.
