The BISA conference next year will allow us to run 2 guaranteed panels as a WG, and we can submit up to 4 for consideration. This will be an important opportunity to continue building a strong research community in the area.

We welcome:

  • Themed panels (ideally with a chair/discussant, but we can help organise this; 4 papers with discussant or 5 without)
  • Papers for consideration on a WG panel Roundtables on a specific research issue (including methodology etc)
  • Panels on pedagogy
  • Discussion around public engagement
  • Innovative panels

Send your ideas around the Ethics and World Politics mailing list and/or we can also help coordindate for you. We would also like to welcome innovative panels and formats, as per BISA’s call for papers. They suggest prospective film screenings, interview formats etc. We are happy to help arrange/coordinate as we are able, especially where an innovative panel might involve those who wouldn’t normally be BISA members or conference attendees.

A practical note: we know that people might not have research budgets and plans sorted out for next year. So, if you do need to withdraw, than can be done without penalty by 1 March 2017.

Do get in touch if there are any questions!
