The International Relations Society is an undergraduate course union of the University of Toronto, housed in the Munk School of Global Affairs. It has two main objectives: to provide students with extra-curricular opportunities to engage with current world affairs through seminars, panel discussions, and an annual conference, and to give students the chance to explore job opportunities through mentorship and other opportunities. The International Relations Society considers being "part of the conversation" an indispensable asset, and thus works to facilitate discussion, debate, discourse, and interaction among world leaders, policy makers, professors, and students.
