Welcome to the conference website of the Fourth Global International Studies Conference sponsored by the World International Studies Committee (WISC) in Frankfurt/Germany, Goethe University Campus Westend, 6-9 August 2014.

Our goal is to provide an interaction space in which International Relations research expertise can be shared on an international level and thus contribute to the expansion of a truly global professional network. For this purpose, IR scholars from around the world will meet in Frankfurt and present their research to a broad audience made up of scholars and experts in all fields of international studies. The overarching theme of the conference is „Justice, Peace and Stability: Risks and Opportunities for Governance and Development“. In addition to classical issues in diplomacy, security and development studies, panels and roundtables will pay special attention to novel issues in global politics, including emerging actors in international relations and new forms of south-south cooperation.

We look forward to welcoming you to this exciting venue.

Willkommen in Frankfurt!
