Who We Are
CIROS was founded in March 2018 as a student initiative aimed at fostering social cohesion within the IRO student community through a range of academic and non-academic events.
Since then, we have grown to become a registered Student Association within Leiden University, with 10 committees, several clubs, as well as several ongoing projects. We are composed of students from over 25 different nationalities.
Our mission is to build a community that every IRO student can feel a part of.

5.12: Regional Experiences Discussion
As international students, we know what it’s like transitioning into a new culture, and that it’s never easy. During this time of the year, you might get homesick but no worries, we’ve all been there! That’s why we want to provide a comfortable space to have a chat about this with fellow students and instructors that have been in your shoes!
Come join us for a relaxed afternoon with our speakers who will give tips on how to navigate the challenges of integrating into a new culture.
6.12: Panel Discussion US Midterm Election
On Tuesday, December 6 at 17.15, an amazing panel of experts will shed light on the recent US Midterm elections.
Together, Dr. Schmidli (assistant professor in US foreign policy and political history), Dr. DiGiuseppe
(assistant professor in international political economy) and Laila Frank (journalist and US political commentator) will try to make sense of the chaos that is US politics. What do the results mean for Biden’s agenda? What is the future of the Republican party? How resilient are the democratic institutions at home? And what stance will the US take abroad?
