In 2015, the Collaborative Research Center 700 participated once again in the Annual Convention of the International Studies Association (ISA), now in its 56th year, in New Orleans, USA.

The ISA held its annual meeting from February 18 to 21, 2015, under the heading: “Global IR and Regional Worlds – A New Agenda for International Studies.”

As in previous years, the SFB 700 stood out in several different events during the conference. Especially successful were a poster exhibit, numerous panels, and a book and information stand. The highlight of the experience was a joint reception co-hosted with the Kolleg-Forschergruppe (KFG) “The Transformative Power of Europe” for all interested participants, experts, and friends of both institutions. More than 350 guests attended the reception and, following a warm welcome by SFB Coordinator Thomas Risse and KFG Co-Director Tanja A. Börzel, used the opportunity to chat with researchers from the SFB projects and learn more about the research center’s work.

Over the course of the four-day conference, scholars from the SFB 700 introduced their research findings on eight different panels and in three round-table discussions. At the panel discussions, SFB researchers presented a total of 10 papers that addressed topics such as the legitimacy of state and non-state governance and governance transfer through regional organizations.

The SFB 700 would like to thank all conference participants for their interest in our work and for a successful ISA Convention 2015!
