Our Services

Together we work with our partners to plan and implement world-class and impactful events with excellence, care and integrity. From the initial spark, through to the conceptualising and shaping of an idea, IAFOR is with you every step of the way.

IAFOR specialises in academic project management, including conferences and seminars, research projects, training and capacity building, and multimedia publishing. We are an accredited procurer for the Japanese government, ISO auditing standards of excellence.

Through its unique network of institutions and individuals, and the IAFOR Research Centre think tank at the Osaka School of International Public Policy at Osaka University, IAFOR coordinates and undertakes original research, including the production of incisive commentaries and analyses. Our strength is in international and interdisciplinary public policy research, especially in the fields of education, peace-building/human security, and governance.
