The Society of International Relations, RSR, is an organization operating at the University of Tartu, with the goal to unite students interested in international relations.

RSR organizes weekly lectures and weekly podcast episodes on different international topics in Genestudio. Articles on international relations are also written and published. In addition, RSR organizes quiz-like events on international relations every fall and spring, and at least once a year a field trip to an interesting institution related to international relations is organized. Our guests are politicians, government officials, academics, entrepreneurs and other people who are interested in or come into contact with international relations.

RSR was founded on the 7th of October in 1963. Among our alumni are many known people, who from time to time come to give us lectures on interesting topics. People in the Inner and Outter Circle are from different faculties and different mayors, for example political science, law and history.

On every Tuesday evening at 18:15 we meet at the Genialistide Klubi to listen to the lecture organized by RSR. With the start of the new school year, we will also start our autumn semester lectures. Keep an eye on our social media for further information.

Laiaulatuslik sõja algusest Ukrainas on möödunud aasta. Hoolimata suurtest kaotustest ei paista Venemaa aga taganevat. Kas Putin on hull? Kes tegelikult Ukrainas sõdivad? Millal ja kuidas sõda lõppeb?

Alanud on 2023. aasta ja sellega koos on tagasi ka Ringjoon. 2023. aasta esimeses saates võtame fookusesse sündmused Iisraelis ja Palestiinas, kus on praeguseks hukkunud 39 palestiinlast ning kaheksa iisraellast. Kuidas nii? Vastuse saamiseks kuulake sellenädalst Ringjoont.
