Every year CIR presents two series consisting of three or four lectures each that are designed to provide background and help put newspaper headlines in context. Speakers, who are typically experts brought from outside of New Mexico, address topics of current international interest. Speakers include academics, ambassadors, cabinet members, governors and journalists, most of whom are familiar from appearances on nationally televised talk and analysis shows.
Lectures are open to the public, and members receive discounted admission and the opportunity to purchase the series at a discount. Students are admitted free.
