The International Studies Association is a multidisciplinary organization that promotes collaboration among specialists whose interests are focused on international, cross–national, or transnational phenomena. It promotes interdisciplinary approaches to problems that cannot fruitfully be examined from the confines of a single discipline. ISA seeks to foster the growth of an international community of scholars, to encourage both theoretical and policy–oriented research on topics in international studies, to develop channels of communication between academics and policymakers, and to improve the teaching of international studies.

Membership in the Association is open to scholars, professionals, and students of any nationality. More that fifty countries are represented in the current membership. Information on individual, regular, and student memberships is available from the Executive Officer, International Studies Association, University of Arizona, Social Sciences 324, Tucson, AZ 85721, USA.
