Vision and mission

The mission of the University is based on scientific and artistic research and aims at sustainable development, artistic creativity and professional work as well as organization and performance of university studies and, exceptionally, occupational studies.

Founded in 1984, Lynne Rienner Publishers remains a rare, independent presence in scholarly and textbook publishing.

"Independent" means a lot of different things to us: Taking chances on new ideas. Being free of the restrictions of corporate headquarters or lenders. Publishing each book with care, from the external review process ... to professional copyediting, typesetting, and proofreading, all done locally ... to quality manufacturing ... to thorough promotion and worldwide distribution. We are also determined to keep our prices as low as possible.
