The International Institute for Research and Education in Manila is envisioned to be an Asian center that could help provide social movements and activists with opportunities for research, education and discussions. Part of the strategic plan in realizing this vision of the Asian institute is to develop and augment its library in order to aid the various schools, progressive researches and publications.
Presently, the IIRE-Manila has only a few hundred copies of books, most of them donated by different individual activists and second copies of some of the English Books of the IIRE in Amsterdam. The collection of books in the IIRE Manila library includes major works of known philosophers, theoreticians and intellectuals, history and social sciences, contemporary issues, events and struggles, among others. The library has also some publications, manuscripts and historical documents of some movements, as well as publications, journals and books in foreign language, like Chinese.
However, the library of the IIRE-Manila is still not enough to achieve its desired goal. We are thus calling all organizations and individuals to help us augment and enrich our collective library by donating various relevant books, magazines, electronic materials and the like. Rest assured that due citation of the donor will be made and that the materials will be put to good use. Please contact us at
