The Argentine Council for International Relations, created in 1978, stimulates the study and debate of international problems. It is a non-profit institution that promulgates the Argentine perspective on international issues.
As an institution, CARIconsejo has 4 principles that it upholds. Firstly, plurality is one of the principles because the institution wants to cover international news and have a diversity of members. Secondly, the principle of liberty is to protect the opinion of each one of the members and preserve their diversity. Thirdly, the principle of objectivity focuses on giving unbiased analysis. Finally, the principle of collaboration helps to collaborate with other parties and institutions to have a bigger picture.
Moreover, CARIconsejo covers regions of Africa, America, Asia and Oceania, Europe and Russia, the Middle East, and the polar regions. It covers different topics from these regions. These include defense and security, economy, democracy, human rights, and coronavirus, and more.
CARIconsejo is also an institution with a membership base model. Indeed, 3 types of membership can be found in its organization. First, the Individual members who enter voluntarily to associate and contribute financially with the organization. Second, members who are elected by the institution regarding the international issue and search for a different perspective. Finally, the institutional members, who are people that work with CARI, and are the ones who organize events, forums, and so forth.
