ISA Statement Condemning Racism

The ISA acknowledges the continued existence of racism across the globe and condemns racism in all its forms. As a global academic association, ISA seeks to promote scholarly inquiry into the sources and consequences of racism and other forms of discrimination in all parts of the world. The ISA encourages studies of social and political action necessary to expose and combat the persistent social, economic and political inequalities around the globe. The ISA maintains a strong commitment to equity, diversity, and inclusion for all marginalized and underrepresented groups.

With members in more than 120 countries representing diverse approaches to the study of global phenomena, the ISA has supported research (https://www.isanet.org/Publications) and conferences (https://www.isanet.org/Conferences/Archive) in which racism and its ramifications have been systematically explored. More scholarship needs to turn to address these critical issues. The ISA leadership commits to fostering such research and improving the representation and experience of underrepresented groups in our profession and our association. It will continue to invest in programs, policies, and practices that strive to create a culture of inclusion in our research, conferences, and workplaces.

ISA 2020 Land Acknowledgement

As we convene, we acknowledge Hawaiʻi as an indigenous space where the descendants of the original people are kānaka ʻōiwi or Native Hawaiian.

The ‘āina [ayne-ah – meaning LAND] on which we gather is located in the ahupua‘a [ahhoo-pu-ah-ah] of Waikīkī, in the moku [moh-koo] of Kona, on the mokupuni [moh-koopu-ni] of O‘ahu [oh-ah-hoo], in the pae‘āina [pie-ayne-ah] of Hawai‘i.

We recognize that her majesty Queen Lili‘uokalani [Lee-lee-ooh-oh-kah-lani] yielded the Hawaiian Kingdom and these territories under duress and protest to the United States to avoid the bloodshed of her people, who are recognized in the Kingdom’s law and today as kānaka Maoli. We further recognize that generations of indigenous Hawaiians and their knowledge systems shaped Hawai‘i in a sustainable way that allow us to enjoy her gifts today. For this, We are truly grateful.
