Welcome to the site of the Irish Association for Russian, Central and East European Studies, IARCEES. This site provides information about the Association's background and current activities, membership and publications.

The principal activities of the Association are organising an annual conference and publishing the biennial Irish Slavonic Studies. Regular updates concerning the annual conference and other Association affairs are also posted on our Facebook page.

We aim to expand our range of activities and to develop our Association as a forum for anyone with an interest in Russia, Central and Eastern Europe, and welcome any suggestions and ideas.
