International Relations as a Social Science (IRSS)

To join a working group you must first join BISA.

Unfortunately the IRSS group currently has no conveners. Unless new conveners can be found the group will have to close down as of 11 June 2021. If you are interested in becoming a convener for IRSS, please do contact our office:

This working group brings together scholars and students interested in pushing the boundaries of the discipline and de-centring ourselves from the way we routinely do, think and speak IR. We are a ‘transversal’ group that aims to be pluralistic and to foster fruitful dialogue with participants from all areas of international studies. IRSS provides a forum for our members to engage such questions through roundtables, workshops and research destabilising and building bridges across IR spectrums.
