ISA is pleased to announce the creation of our newest section: Global International Relations (GIRS). The goals of GIRS are to facilitate genuinely global conversations about contemporary global issues and challenges, about different conceptual approaches and interpretations, and about how we teach our subject. We want to encourage conversations that are resonant with, non-alienating, or at least comprehensible to the lived experiences of individuals from different parts of the world. The section is being led by Thomas Biersteker at The Graduate Institute, Geneva and Vendulka Kubalkova at the University of Miami.
ISA members can join this section - and any of our other 29 sections of ISA - by adding the section to their existing membership: http://www.isanet.org/Membership/Your-Membership. If you're not an ISA member, please consider joining the organization to be able to connect with this section and our many others!
