IFRA coordinates multi-disciplinary research programmes based on specific research themes. Initially specialized in political sciences and anthropology, it opened up to other social sciences such as demography, history, geography, economics, and socio-linguistics. Over the last fifteen years, the flow of visiting French researchers, notably PhD students, has highly increased and links with local universities have been strengthened.
