Welcome to IPS

IPS aims to foster research and scholarly communication in the realm of international and transnational studies and to bridge the domestic and international levels of analysis. The Section’s focus is on the social and cultural dimensions of international studies, broadly conceived. One of its main purposes is to foster innovative epistemological, methodological, analytic and theoretical perspectives on aspects of international studies less central to state-centered, economic, diplomatic and other traditional approaches.
