World International Studies Committee WISC

WISC stands for World International Studies Committee. It represents a network of national and regional professional associations in the academic field of International Studies. WISC includes more than 20 national or regional international studies associations worldwide and, thus, stands as the only genuinely global organization of international studies scholarship. Its declared mission is to promote scholarly cooperation and exchange at the international level and reach out in particular to those countries, regions and communities of scholarship which are still underrepresented in global international studies.
