"The Institute of Organizational Discourse, Strategy and Change (IODSC)" was established at Meiji University in April 2010. It is the first research institute from Asia to participate in the global research consortium "The International Center for Research on Organizational Discourse, Strategy and Change (ICRODSC)". Currently, this consortium consists of twelve universities from around the world: the University of Melbourne, the University of Sydney, McGill University, Queen Mary College (University of London); the Judge Business School of Cambridge, the University of Leicester, Lund University, the University of Colorado; Texas A&M University, Cardiff University Business School and the University of California, Santa Barbara.

In order to better disseminate the activities and accomplishments of discourse research globally, this institute is not only active at the centre of discourse research in Japan, but functions as the Japanese host institution for ICRODSC.
