CFP: BISA 41st International Annual Conference

Join BISA in Edinburgh for a three day interdisciplinary conference spanning the entire range of International Studies.
Questions of global justice animate large swathes of our discipline, as well as the cognate social sciences. Social, economic, civil and political injustice is prevalent across the globe, and daily we are reminded of the need for new and imaginative approaches to global jus-tice capable of interrogating and understanding how the principles of justice relate to the international and global context, the principles and efficacy of the global justice agenda, the impact of shifting power dynamics on shared norms, and the evolution of public and private governance in this arena. The theme for the BISA’s 2016 Annual Conference seeks to connect research across the discipline of international studies – from the sub-fields of international political theory, international security, international political economy, and others – to explore the dynamics of justice and injustice in the contemporary world.


We invite paper and panel proposals on any topics related to the conference theme above, as well as on other general International Studies subjects.
The submission process will open during the week of 26th October 2015, we are just making some improvements to the online submission forms enabling people to be able to save and amend submissions as well as submit them amongst other improvements to the confernece submission process. 
For further details of submission procedures, and instructions on submitting a panel, roundtable or paper proposal please click here. Any questions about any aspects of the submission process should be directed to the BISA office
The final deadline for submission of all proposals is 5.00pm 27th November 2015. Earlier submission of proposals is encouraged and no late submissions will be accepted.
The conference will be held at the Radission Blu Hotel, Edinburgh and the Carlton Hotel. The 2 hotels are 5-10 minutes apart on foot and adjacent to the world famous Royal Mile, from here it is also only a short stroll into the city centre with its many shops, restaurants and bars.
