Exploratory Symposia in Rapallo

Are you preparing a grant proposal, a special issue, an edited book, or setting up a new research network? The EISA Exploratory Symposia offers an excellent opportunity to meet in groups to pursue collaborative work.


The Exploratory Symposia aim to facilitate two kinds of research groups:

(1) Newly established groups that would like to meet at an early stage of a research project to progress it;

(2) Already established research groups that would like to meet to work out how to further their research agenda.


We encourage in particular participants and section chairs of the Pan-European Conference (PEC) on International Relations and European Workshops in International Studies (EWIS) to apply to continue their work through the Exploratory Symposia.


In 2024, EISA will host its 11th Exploratory Symposia for members in the town of Rapallo on the Portofino Coast in Italy, 27th October to 30th October 2024.
