After careful review of nominees and careful deliberations, the International Studies Association Nominating Committee (Birol Yesilada [chair], Sabine Carey, Tricia Lynne Sullivan, Kelly M. Kadera, Burcu Savun, Hendrik Spruyt, Galia Press-Barnathan, Kamal Sadiq, and Benjamin O. Fordham) agreed on a single slate of candidates for ISA Officers:

  • President: Cameron Thies (Arizona State University)
  • Vice President: Navnita C. Behera (University of Delhi)
  • Vice President: John Ikenberry (Princeton University)
  • Vice President: Laura Shepherd (UNSW)

We also selected nominees for at-large representatives to the governing council from outside the recognized ISA regions. Our charge is to forward five candidates for three positions. We recommend the following candidates:

  • At-Large Representative: Soumita Basu (South Asian University)
  • At-Large Representative: Halvard Buhaug (PRIO)
  • At-Large Representative: Sinem Akgul-Acikmese (Kadir Has University)
  • At-Large Representative: Jorge A. Schiavon (Centro de Investigacion y Docencia Economicas)
  • At-Large Representative: Imad Mansour (Qatar University)

All of these nominees have been contacted by the Committee Chair and have agreed to serve if elected.

The committee followed procedures very similar to those of previous years. We met and organized at the 2017 annual meeting and prepared calls for nominations that were distributed to the full membership. ISA headquarters emailed section and caucus chairs and workshop chairs to solicit nominations for at-large positions. ISA headquarters also sent calls through the newsletter and other social media. We set a deadline of June 15, 2017 for nominations and asked for a letter in support of each candidate, a CV, and a statement of willingness to serve. We made decisions via a skype conference on July 24, 2017.

We had three nominations for president, eight for vice president, and seven for at-large representative. The committee was pleased to have multiple strong candidates for each position. We are pleased with the final slate of candidates and believe they will serve ISA well in their capacities as officers and representatives of the association.

If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to contact me.
