European Information Network on International Relations and Area Studies (EINIRAS)The European Information Network on International Relations and Area Studies (EINIRAS) is an association of research institutions dealing with information and documentation on international relations in research and political practice.
EINIRAS's long-term objective is to establish a common European database on international relations and area studies. Its short-term objectives include the expansion of practical cooperation and the exchange of information, bibliographical data and publications.
The association's various projects, which are managed by several working groups, include common documentary tools (a multi-lingual thesaurus, regional and subject classifications, rules for proper names and categorical schema), a regime for the construction of a bibliographical and factual database, and models for technical infrastructure as well as for operational organization.
