ISSS Statement on Diversity and Inclusion

The Governing Council (GC) of the International Security Studies Section (ISSS) of the International Studies Association (ISA) is looking forward to welcoming you to the next conference in 2022. Naazneen Barma has generously agreed to serve as program chair and is looking forward to reviewing your submissions after the June 1, 2021, deadline. The call for submissions can be found here: https://www.isanet.org/Conferences/ISA2022/Call

As you prepare your papers, panels and roundtable submissions, we wanted to share with you our statement on diversity and inclusion. While the sharing of excellent and world class scholarship is the first order of business at our conferences, so too is developing a community of scholars. We aspire to create a welcoming and diverse community both in terms of who is represented at the conference and the scholarship that is presented. As the largest section of ISA, we thought it was important to signal our commitment to creating and enhancing diversity and inclusion. In that light, the ISSS GC would like to share with you the following statement:

ISSS Statement on Diversity and Inclusion
As members of the International Studies Association, we believe in the mission of the organization, which seeks to create communities of scholars among its 100 represented countries and over 6,500 members. As part of advancing that mission, the International Security Studies Section (ISSS) dedicates itself to ensuring as best as it can to providing representation to individual colleagues’ substantive research and the different caucuses and geographic subdivisions in the selection and design of our section’s conference programming.
 
We also commit to building a truly diverse, inclusive, and global network of scholars and scholarship in our section and in the ISA. In selecting panels and roundtables for the ISA ISSS section, the program chair will look favorably upon those proposals that manifest panel diversity in all its forms and support inclusive representation – all to the extent that we can discern from submissions. We interpret inclusive representation to mean featuring scholars from historically under-represented groups of all kinds in presenting roles – not serving exclusively in chair or discussant roles. Given the broad range of areas of scholarship in our section, we welcome diverse perspectives across traditional and non-traditional security studies.
 
We wish you all the best and hope to see you in person in Nashville!
