International Relations and Decolonial Ethics

Conference report: ISA 2018 (International Studies Association 59th Annual Convention, San Francisco, California, USA)

by Thomas Mercier (Post-doc CEFRES & Charles University)

The International Studies Association (ISA) was founded in 1959. It was created by U.S. political scientists who were growing dissatisfied with the hegemonic position enjoyed by behaviourists within the American Political Science Association. Because the behaviourist approach naturally privileges methodological individualism and micro-scale analytics, it was deemed ill-fitted for the study of international affairs, balances of power between states or empires and macrostructural politics, as well as for understanding the specifics of war, diplomacy or foreign policy. Additionally, it was the intention of the founders of ISA to offer a more inclusive platform, less focused on American politics and more open to other methodologies and disciplines. But the creation of ISA also reflected a general trend in Western academia: the field of International Relations (IR), born in the UK just after WW1, was progressively affirming its independence from its mother disciplines — disciplines such as political science, social sciences or political theory.

Polish Diaspora in France 1918–2018

Polish Diaspora in France 1918-2018. State of the Art and New Perspectives (Warsaw, 27–28 February 2018)

Compte rendu par Florence Vychytil-Baudoux

A scientific conference dedicated to the Polish “diaspora” in France was held in Warsaw on February 27th and 28th, 2018. It was organised by the Centre de Civilisation Française et d’Etudes Francophones (OKF, University of Warsaw), in collaboration with the Centre of Migration Research (University of Warsaw) and the Centre de Civilisation Polonaise (CCP – Paris-Sorbonne University). A tribute to historian Janine Ponty (1930-2017), a pioneer historian on interwar Polish migrants in France, the conference stemmed from the desire to bring together researchers so to review the current state of knowledge, sketch out research perspectives and launch a research network on the topic of Poles in France.
