The aim of the Early Career Development Group (ECD) group is to create safe, generous,
and diverse spaces for early career scholars in International Studies and related disciplines.
It does so by actively stimulating and contributing to EISA, assisting its board in matters
concerning ECDs, and organizing meetings and activities.

In this context, thematic discussions and learning concerning topics that are of particular
relevance to early career scholars can take place, both in the context of EISA annual
conferences and workshops such as PEC and EWIS and beyond. The agenda and activities
of the group are constantly under development and open to ideas of new ECD group
members as well as the wider community.

Group members benefit from their involvement in the group by building up networks,
visibility and organizational experience.
