Agirre Lehendakaria Center


The Agirre Lehendakaria Center (ALC) is a centre of interdisciplinary studies within the Social Sciences framework linked to the University of the Basque Country (UPV/EHU) and to its campus of excellence (Euskampus). It has been developed in collaboration with the University of Columbia New York (The Advanced Consortium on Cooperation, Conflict and Complexity - AC4), Seton Hall University and George Mason University (School for Conflict Analysis and Resolution - SCAR).


It aims to carry out innovative research activities and to disseminate knowledge, sharing the set of decisions and projects that have enabled the Basque community to position itself as a successful model of social and economic transformation with the rest of the world, as well as promoting sustainable human development.

To do so, it carries out various international research and intervention projects as well as initiatives designed to share this knowledge with the entire Basque community. Taking the Basque transformation experience over the past few decades as a reference point it also reflects on the future challenges that the Basque Country will have to face.
