ISA2023 Theme - Real Struggles, High Stakes: Cooperation, Contention, and Creativity

The 2023 conference aims to address this high-stakes moment and our responses to it. We see great value in exploring how this time is framed and understood among the different sections, regions, and caucuses in ISA; within distinct theoretical, epistemological, and ontological traditions; and among practitioners and scholars.
