ENGSS was started early in 1999 by Barry Buzan, Richard Little and Ole Wæver, who wanted to reconvene the English School (ES) of International Relations Theory.

The idea of ENGSS is to strengthen the ties within the existing ES community, and to build new ties to related areas of work in other disciplines and areas, particularly World History, International Law, International Political Economy, European Union studies and Historical Sociology.

The aim is to develop a set of ES research priorities and to create a clearer division of labour within the community and between it and other communities. In part, this is about recovering some of the working methods of the British Committee, albeit adapting them to the reality that the ES is now larger, more international, and more diverse than at any time in the past.

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 7 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.
