South Asia in World Politics (SAWP)

A map of SAWP's Panel Titles from ISA 2018

Welcome to SAWP

The South Asia in World Politics (SAWP) Section creates a fertile dialogue between areas such as International relations theory, comparative regionalism, foreign policy analysis, and brings in the contextual knowledge of South Asia to ISA. Through this section, more and more scholars of South Asia will engage with the concepts and theories that have emerged from IR. In turn, IR theories will benefit from more contextual knowledge. 
The South Asia in World Politics Section is our newest section, recently approved by the Governing Council during the 2016 ISA Annual Convention in Atlanta.  If you're interested in joining this section, feel free to join today!
