News and Updates from FPA

It was an exciting Governing Council meeting this year in Atlanta at our Annual Convention. One important piece of business involved the approval of a new section: South Asia in World Politics (SAWP).

The South Asia in World Politics (SAWP) Section creates a fertile dialogue between areas such as International relations theory, comparative regionalism, foreign policy analysis, and brings in the contextual knowledge of South Asia to ISA. Through this section, more and more scholars of South Asia will engage with the concepts and theories that have emerged from IR. In turn, IR theories will benefit from more contextual knowledge. It is being led by Sumit Ganguly at Indiana University and Navnita Behera at Delhi University.

We remain amazed by the growth and breadth of our sections - and by our members' diverse intellectual strengths and pursuits.

The South Asia in World Politics Section will be accepting paper and panel submissions for the first time this year for the ISA 2017 Annual Convention in Baltimore (note: June 1st submission deadline).

ISA members can join this section - and any of our other 29 sections of ISA - by adding the section to their existing membership: http://www.isanet.org/Membership/Your-Membership. If you're not an ISA member, please consider joining the organization to be able to connect with this section and our many others!

The International Studies Association

Representing over 100 countries, ISA has more than 6,500 members worldwide and is the most respected and widely known scholarly association in this field. Endeavoring to create communities of scholars dedicated to international studies, ISA is divided into 6 geographic subdivisions of ISA (Regions), 29 thematic groups (Sections) and 4 Caucuses which provide opportunities to exchange ideas and research with local colleagues and within specific subject areas.
