About ISA

The International Studies Association (ISA) has been the premier organization for connecting scholars and practitioners in fields of international studies since 1959.

ISA was founded in 1959 to promote research and education in international affairs. With well over six thousand members in North America and around the world, ISA is the most respected and widely known scholarly association in this field. ISA cooperates with 57 international studies organizations in over 30 countries, is a member of the International Social Science Council, and enjoys nongovernmental consultative status with the United Nations.

ISA houses many sub-groups - find out more about them below: 

  • SectionsSections are thematic sub-units of ISA organized around specific topics and research interests in international studies. Members of ISA are welcome to join any Sections they would like.
  • Regions: Regions are geographic sub-units of ISA, offering opportunities for members to exchange ideas and research with local colleagues. Membership in regions is automatically determined by the geographic location of the member.
  • Caucuses: Caucuses offer a collaborative environment for ISA members who are interested in supporting and advocating on matters of concern for identified constituencies within ISA. Members of ISA are welcome to join any caucus they would like.
  • Publications: ISA publishes six academic journals, co-sponsors a seventh, publishes a comprehensive compendium of international studies and maintains a variety of online resources for the international community.

Special Projects Grant Program

Each year, the ISA HQ receives a variety of proposals, outside the current ISA funding mechanisms, that ask for project support and make a financial request. During its 2017 meeting in Baltimore, the Governing Council renewed the special project grants program; proposals for funding are accepted from members and sections/regions/caucuses.
