History of EISA

EISA was founded in 2013 by former members of the Steering Committee of the Standing Group on International Relations (SGIR) of the European Consortium for Political Research (ECPR). EISA was created to increase the range of activities and opportunities available to members of the international studies community and to this end, we continue to work alongside other international studies associations, including the SGIR, to advance our field and its scholars.
