Update on ISA Global South Conference

Many of you have been somewhat anxiously awaiting our decision as to a change of venue for the GSCIS conference scheduled to be held in Bangkok in January 2015. As everyone is aware, the military has taken control of Thailand and the space for free and open discussion, including academic interchange, has been narrowed considerably. We are now able to announce that the venue has been changed to nearby Singapore. Our new host will be the Singapore Management University which has graciously not only stepped into the breach but also has contributed added funds to host this important conference. We are delighted to be able to transfer the site to such a central and culturally significant country which has been the source of so many ideas for study and emulation politically, economically, and diplomatically, in the global south.



English School Working Groups

The English School Section (ENGSS) of the International Studies Association seeks to reach out to scholars throughout the world who are interested in the study of international society with the purpose of bringing them together and involving them in its research, publications and conference activities. To this end, interested colleagues are invited to join one or more (depending on your research interests) of the English School Working Groups.
