About ISS

The Intelligence Studies Section (ISS) is devoted to the advancement of research on all aspects of intelligence as it relates to international studies. Dedicated to studying and teaching the specific subject of intelligence, the ISS also believes that the subject should be addressed in the larger context of international relations, foreign policy, international law, ethics, and the efforts of nation-states to maintain political, economic, and military security.

Members of the section are drawn from a variety of disciplines, including political science, history, international relations, sociology, and law. The ISS organizes panels at the annual meetings of the International Studies Association (ISA) and cooperates with other professional organizations in the United States, Canada, and Great Britain in promoting intelligence studies.

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.
