PHISO congratulates, Assoc Prof Dr Nassef Manabilang Adiong and Asst Prof Frances Antoinette C. Cruz

Warmest congratulations to

Assoc Prof Dr Nassef Manabilang Adiong for being elected as one of the Governing Board officers of the World International Studies Committee (WISC) and to

Asst Prof Frances Antoinette C. Cruz for being elected as the At-Large South and Southeast Asia and the Pacific Representative of the Global South Caucus of International Studies (GSCIS).


World International Studies Committee (WISC) represents a network of national and regional professional associations in the academic field of International Studies. WISC includes more than 20 national or regional international studies associations worldwide and, thus, stands as the only genuinely global organization of international studies scholarship. Its declared mission is to promote scholarly cooperation and exchange at the international level and reach out in particular to those countries, regions and communities of scholarship which are still underrepresented in global international studies. See https://www.wiscnetwork.net/about-wisc for details.


The Global South Caucus of International Studies (GSCIS) is open to members of all sections of the International Studies Association (ISA) who study the global south regions, the south as a whole, relevant south societies in the north, or relations between the north and south. The Global South Caucus is a “trans-sectional” network that aims to:

  • provide a channel for the sharing of research, information and ideas among scholars and practitioners of/in the various regions of the south;
  • promote the ISA as the premier forum for the dissemination of cross-regional global south research;
  • encourage south scholars to participate in the association’s conferences (via GS panels as well as proposals to the relevant sections) and other initiatives;
  • encourage south scholars to publish in ISA journals;
  • work with the ISA committees and sections to encourage graduate students to work on south issues and regions, and engage in professional development activities intended to improve the employment opportunities and advancement in the profession of south-oriented scholars.
