Status of Women in International Studies Survey

Dear ISA Colleague,

We ask you to take part in an important survey to assess the status of women within the fields of international studies. This survey is being sent to all ISA members under the sponsorship of the Committee on the Status of Women (CSW) and the Women’s Caucus (WCIS), with the support of ISA headquarters. A similar instrument was sent to all ISA members in 1995 and 2005. With this 2015 survey, we aim to conduct updated analyses of the experiences and attitudes of members related to the status of women in the international studies profession. The online survey is now open and will close December 8. We estimate that it will take about 20 minutes to complete.

For more information related to IRB review, the review letter is available here.

Your responses are critical to us. Thank you in advance for your time.
