IPSA at the 2022 ISA Convention

Publication date: Tue, 08 Mar 2022

After formalizing its cooperation with the International Studies Association (ISA) in 2021, IPSA will have a strong representation at the 2022 ISA Convention in Nashville, U.S. The event will be held from 28 March to 2 April 2022 under the theme A Wider Discipline for A Smaller World.

IPSA President Dianne Pinderhughes, IPSA Past President Marianne Kneuer and IPSA Executive Director Kim Fontaine-Skronski will be present at the ISA Convention.

IPSA Booth

IPSA will also dispatch Mathieu St-Laurent, Membership, Research and Strategy Senior Director, to the event. Mr. St-Laurent will staff the IPSA booth and meet ISA delegates to promote the 2023 IPSA World Congress and IPSA activities.

IPSA Panels

IPSA will present two panels under the following theme: The Co-option of Critical Voices: How International Organizations Assimilate Critical Advocacy and Convert it into Global Norms. The panels will be chaired by Olivier Nay and Annabelle Littoz-Monnet. Participants will discuss the extent to which international organizations (IOs) engage in a process of “epistemic capture.” This notion refers to the activities by which IO experts seize critical ideas, reinterpret and distort them to exhaust their critical content, and finally make them compliant with the institution’s official orientations.
