From March 16–19, 2016, the Collaborative Research Center (SFB) 700 participated once again with great success in the Annual Convention der International Studies Association (ISA), which marked its 57th year in Atlanta, Georgia.

News from Apr 11, 2016

The SFB 700 showcased its work with a broad range of events. In total, eleven scholars from the SFB traveled to Atlanta to present their research findings and publications on nine panels and in a round table discussion. For example, one panel organized by the SFB revolved around the question: “Areas of Limited Statehood: What Makes State and Non-State Governance Effective and Legitimate?” Thomas Risse and Tanja A. Börzel used the conference to present their most recent publication: the Handbook of Comparative Regionalism, published by Oxford University Press.

A high point of the convention, as in previous years, was a reception co-hosted with the Kolleg-Forschergruppe (KFG) „The Transformative Power of Europe“ for all interested guests and experts, as well as friends of both institutions. Following a welcome by SFB Coordinator Thomas Risse and Co-director of the KFG Tanja A. Börzel, about 250 guests enjoyed the opportunity to chat with SFB scholars and learn more about the Research Center’s work.

The SFB 700 also participated in the conference with a book and information stand, which generated great interest and attracted many visitors.

We would like to thank all conference participants for a successful ISA 2016 and your interest in our work!
