Dec 03, 2015
The International Studies Association (ISA) is the world's leading network for scientists in the International Relations field. It unites over 6,500 members worldwide. ISA’s Annual Convention is the main event to meet most of these members. Next year the convention, which takes place for the 57th time and routinely draws over 6,000 visitors, will be held in Atlanta, Georgia, from Wednesday 16 March to Saturday 19 March. Scholars, practitioners, and students of international affairs will be making their way to Atlanta to discuss and exchange ideas in hundreds of panels and symposia under the headline “Exploring Peace“.
International Studies Association Convention 2016: The KFG in Atlanta
In Atlanta, the Hilton Atlanta will be ISA’s headquarters hotel, where registration, panels, meetings, receptions, and the president's address will take place. Additionally, some panels and meetings will also be located at Sheraton Atlanta, the co-headquarters hotel.
As in previous years, the Directors of the KFG, Prof. Dr. Tanja A. Börzel and Prof. Dr. Thomas Risse, as well as a number of fellows and alumni will be represented at the conference, to share their contributions to the field of international studies and to connect with colleagues from around the globe. Furthermore, there will be a reception hosted by the KFG, to which we kindly invite you!
The reception will take place on Wednesday evening, 16 March, from 7:30pm to 8:30pm at the Hilton Atlanta. KFG-directors Prof. Dr. Tanja A. Börzel and Prof. Dr. Thomas Risse will give a key-note address. It would be a pleasure to welcome you on this occasion, so mark your calendars!
You can find all scheduled events in the recently published program (to access the prorgam click here). Just search for former or present KFG fellows and you will find diverse and interesting panels like the one on Membership in Regional Organizations and the Development of Democratic Norms with the participation of Jeffrey T. Checkel, Tanja A. Börzel, Sören Stapel, and Stefano Palestini, to just name one.
Last but not least, for the entire duration of the conference you will be able to find us inside the ISA exhibit hall at booth 626. Here, our staff as well as doctoral and postdoctoral fellows will answer questions and assist you in all other KFG-related inquiries. You will also be able to take a look at the by then newly published Oxford Handbook on Comparative Regionalism.
