Sixth Global International Studies Conference
The ‘International’ Around the World: Multiple Voices, Alternative Orders
Buenos Aires, Argentina
June 28th - July 1st, 2022
WISC in cooperation with UCA, Universidad de San Andrés and FLACSO Argentina organized the Sixth Global International Studies Conference, which was originally scheduled for July 2020, but took place in Buenos Aires between June 28th - July 1st, 2022. Hosted for the first time in Latin America, the conference sought to include different voices from and around the world regarding different ways to study, explain, understand, and make sense of international studies in general, and international relations in particular.
The world has become a complicated, complex and fascinating place, where multiple plays and voices are unfolding. Those voices come not only from great powers and nation-states, but increasingly from non-state actors and individuals, people at the margins of world politics, silenced voices lost in the cacophony of current events. Consequently, international studies are more than state power and international relations in the traditional sense. With the aim of developing a dialogue between students and scholars from different latitudes and hemispheres, we welcomed proposals that included theoretical and empirical studies that revisited historical and conceptual assumptions and scenarios about the ‘international’ and about world orders, enriched our understanding of current international affairs, and/or suggested institutional innovations for improving the quality of global public policy.
The academic program for the conference was organized in the format of sections composed of panels and/or roundtables. Each panel included between four and five paper presentations, or a roundtable of up to eight participants. Each session had a chair, plus a discussant in the case of a paper panel. The language of the conference was English, with a limited number of panels in Spanish/Portuguese.
We would like to thank for their continuing support former WISC President Gunther Hellmann as well as current President Pinar Bilgin; Roberto Domínguez, Executive Secretary; and Karina Jędrzejowska, Treasurer. Equally, we would like to acknowledge the hard work of the two committees that made this Conference possible; the International Committee: Erica Simone Almeida Resende, Anna Wróbel, and especially Isaac Flores Delgado, our IT wizard; and the Local Committee: Ariel Sebastián González, Andrea Oelsner and Melisa Deciancio.
Our warmest gratitude is extended to the authorities and academic and support staff of the Pontifical Catholic University of Argentina (UCA), who bore with us for the past three years, and not least the Section Chairs of the more than thirty Sections, to whom we owe an important part of the Conference’s success: Maximiliano Vila Seoane, Daniel Blinder, María Cecilia Míguez, Miriam Gomes Saraiva, Camilo López Burian, Evgenii Gamerman, Marcin Grabowski, Leslie Wehner, Cameron Thies, Rut Diamint, Carina Solmirano, María Florencia Rubiolo, Jorge M.
