Who are we
Ideas and Ideals to be Us in the World
The Galician Institution of International Analysis and Documentation (IGADI, for its Galician name, Instituto Galego de Análise e Documentación Internacional) is an independent think tank and an association of international studies founded in 1991. We have a twofold purpose: to reflect on the problems and trends of contemporary international society and to advocate for a greater insertion of Galicia in the world at all levels.
The IGADI is a community of knowledge that carries out its work with a vocation for public service, from a plural activity. It intends to establish itself as a meeting place, where all sensibilities and disciplines can develop and converse in a loyal and complicit way, in line with our founding mission.
The IGADI has managed to define its own profile in a 30-year trajectory with different results and projects that should be highlighted: the definition of the first White Paper on Galician Foreign Action, the magazine Tempo Exterior, the annual reports on Galician international policy and foreign action, the Observatory of Chinese Policy, the Galician Observatory of Lusophone, the Plácido Castro Foundation and the Galician Fund for Cooperation and Solidarity.
The IGADI is a continuation of the universalist and deeply humanist tradition of historical Galicianism, which promotes an international system based on the principles of the United Nations. Here, cooperation and collaboration prevail over confrontation and conflict. Galician society can find in IGADI a collaborating entity for its foreign action strategies and international projection, following the 2030 Agenda.
