ISA HQ is very pleased to announce the arrival of our newest team member, Dr. Kristy A. Belton. Kristy received her PhD in 2014 in political science and was most recently a post-doctoral fellow in the Human Rights Center at the University of Dayton. Broadly educated in international relations and comparative politics, Kristy’s research focuses on citizenship, statelessness, migration and international relations theory. This work, embedded in the human rights field, has taken her to many places in the world for field research, with her dissertation research funded by a Bucerius “Settling into Motion” Ph.D. fellowship. Kristy was also the 2015 recipient of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees Award for Best Doctoral Research on Statelessness. Aside from a number of refereed articles on these topics, she has a book forthcoming with the University of Pennsylvania Press tentatively titled Rooted Displacement: The Paradox of Belonging in a Postnational World.

At ISA HQ, Kristy will be working closely with all staff members, but especially on the programming side of our operations with Lembe Tiky and Alex Walker. Among the projects specifically under Kristy’s charge are the Career Courses, Innovative Panels, and the Early Career Scholar Town Hall among other projects throughout the year.

So please join me in welcoming Kristy to ISA HQ. She can be reached by email at
