1.1.3. Section re-approval of the ESS Charter. ESS Chair Ronnie Lipschutz explained that the section had to be rechartered at the end of December 2005. Because there was not electronic version of the charter available, he had to reconstruct it from a ten year old version plus such amendments as were reported in minutes of previous business meetings. Thus, it was deemed appropriate to ask the section to re-approve the Charter. Some questions were raised about voting for the new charter without the opportunity to read it. The Section voted re-approval but members were urged to raise any questions or comments with Lipschutz (rlipsch@ucsc.edu)so that the Charter can be corrected, if necessary.

1.1.4. Reports
a. Chair Ronnie Lipschutz: On Tuesday, March 21, the ISA Governing Council spent the afternoon discussing various matters of Association business. Membership is rising as are conference attendance and program. ISA has a respectable financial surplus, largely because of a subvention from Blackwell for the (soon to be) five ISA journals. The Council has also increased funding for child care and workshops.

The possibility was raised of capping the conference program because it has gotten so large that some panels are not attended. There were some 750 panels at this year’s conference, and more than 800 are planned for next year.

Blackwell and the Association have agreed to assemble a 15-20 volume, 7,000 page “encyclopedia” of International Studies, which the Governing Council approved with a few expressed reservations. Bob Denemark (U. of Delaware) will be the General Editor; the volumes will be organized around sections and important issues and topics within sections, and will require a coordinator and/or committee in each section. The series will be available in paper and online. The latter will be updated every two years, the former every five. The first volumes, it is hoped, will be in manuscript form within 12 months.

Lipschutz also reported on the Section. Membership seems to be down from around 250 to around 200, although it is difficult to be certain. It would behoove the Section to try to increase membership through various means. He also raised the issue of spending ESS money on the reception and whether we should spend money on other things, such as travel support for junior scholars. We do have co-sponsorships from the Ashgate environmental series and MIT journals which cover about half the cost of the reception (approximately $3,000). (General sentiment at the meeting and reception seemed against changing the reception.)

b. Vice-chair Beth DeSombre described panel allocation. ISA received 20 panels fully-formed and 75 papers listing ESS as first choice. ESS received 28 panels (same as last year) but managed to co-sponsor an additional 8 panels co-sponsored with five other sections. Allocations appear to be a function of the number of papers as well as section membership. In particular, if you have a panel waiting in the wings, you receive them when slots become available.

DeSombre made the following points:
* There is no downside to listing a second choice section.
* Propose a poster if you really want to get a paper accepted and go to ISA; posters are sometimes upgraded to panels.
* If you propose something related to the conference theme, put ESS as a second choice, if it is appropriate.

c. Sprout Committee Chair Stacy Vandeveer said that 50 books were nominated this year, and 35 were considered viable submissions (see attached list). The winner was Ken Conca for Governing Water: Contentious Transnational Politics and Global Institution Building (MIT Press). Vandeveer reminded members that the best predictor of whether or not a book is nominated is if the author gets the publisher to submit. A book can only be considered for the award if all members of the committee (five) receive a copy. Books are eligible for nomination for two years.

d. Graduate Student Paper Award: Lipschutz announced that ten papers presented at the 2005 conference were nominated. The Executive committee reviewed the papers in several rounds, and decided to make two awards. The winners each receive a signed certificate and a check for $100:

Rachel DeMotts (U. Wisconsin Madison) “Participating in Conservation: Governing on the Ground in the Great Limpopo National Park”

Diana Post (UC Berkeley) “Precaution vs Risk in the International Arena: The Case of Codex Alimentarius.

1.1.5. General announcements

a. Section finances: The question of how we spend our money with be addressed by the Executive Committee, and ideas for increasing revenues will be discussed.

b. UN meetings: Jacqueline Braveboy-Wagner (jbraveboy-wagner@gc.cuny.edu), the ISA’s UN-NGO Representative, is seeking people interested in attending UN meetings and conferences. There is no funding to support attendance but she can facilitate obtaining the necessary credentials, a long process. Contact her for information, and apply early.

c. IISD: Lynn Wagner (International Institute for Sustainable Development) announced a new publication, MEA Bulletin. You can find it at www.iisd.ca and sign up for subscriptions there. There is also an opportunity for guest articles to be submitted. Contact lynn@iisd.org if you are interested.

d. ENB: Pam Chasek announced that the Earth Negotiations Bulletin needs writers who are interested in and have knowledge of the chemicals conventions (POPS, PIC, Basel, Montreal Protocol). There may also be a need for writers with knowledge of African environmental issues. If you have any PhD students or know of anyone else, have them contact Chris Spence at chris@iisd.org.

e. Conference: Prof. Margaret Shannon mshannon@buffalo.edu announced a conference on Translating Global Governance Designs: The role of civil society in transition countries, 17-20 September 2006 in St. Petersburg, Russia. It is co-sponsored by the Center for Independent Social Research and SUNY Buffalo School of Law and Baldy Center.

f. Wilson Center Fellowships: Geoff Dabelko announced that applications are now available. Go to www.wilsoncenter.org for more information.

1.1.6. Panel proposals for Chicago, 2007
Margaret Shannon mshannon@buffalo.edu proposed three possible panels for the 2007 ISA Conference:
“The role of Civil Society in translating governance designs”
“The role of research and researchers in translating governance design”
“It’s my water: policy around the Great Lakes”

1.1.7. Other Business
Everyone introduced themselves. The meeting ended at 1:30 PM.

1.2. Message from the Chair.

Dear ESS Members:
I hope this message finds you in good spirits and looking forward to summer. For those of you who made it to San Diego, I assume you had a fine time despite the peculiar venue. For those who were unable to come, I presume we will see you next year in Chicago (brrr1). Attached are the minutes of the ESS Business meeting, including a list of Sprout Award nominees. A few additional points:
If you have not paid your membership dues lately, I encourage you to re-up. Don’t forget to tick off membership in the Section;
We are looking for paper and panel proposals for Chicago (very few were offered at the Business Meeting this year). You can find information about the conference theme at www.isanet.org. If you have a panel idea but few or no participants, please send a title or abstract to me, and I will see that it gets sent.
The Executive Committee is seeking the names of those who might like to be members of the sections’ “Encyclopedia” committee. See the minutes above for more details of the project.
We are also interested in ideas for enhancing the size of the Section’s account.

1.8. 2007 ISA – GENERAL CALL FOR PAPERS .
Isa 48th Annual Convention Chicago, Il, February 28 – March 3, 2007, “Politics, Policy And Responsible Scholarship.” J. Ann Tickner, 2007 President. Andrei Tsygankov, 2007 Program Chair
International relations deals with some of the most pressing issues facing humanity – war and peace, global political and economic governance, poverty, injustice, and environmental degradation. As international relations scholars we are motivated to take up these and other pressing global issues in our research and teaching. Nevertheless, we hold very different views on our responsibility with respect to: 1) political advocacy and policy analysis and our relationships to the centers and peripheries of various power structures; 2) whether our research should be motivated by policy oriented problem solving within existing political structures or structurally transformational; 3) how we represent and reproduce our discipline and our world through our teaching; and 4) our national citizenship responsibilities which sometimes conflict with our multiple political loyalties and identifications, the findings of our internationally oriented research, or the insights generated by an empathetic teaching style. What then are the appropriate boundaries of such identifications and practices? How should we address the ethical dilemmas they often create? How, as internationally-oriented individuals and communities, should we better define, address, and perhaps satisfy, our scholarly responsibilities vis-à-vis such political issues and public policies? The theme of the 2007 conference takes up these questions. We invite participants to explore the various dimensions and boundaries of scholarly responsibility.
At certain times and in certain places, scholars have had an important and direct influence on policymaking. Yet, in the present era of unprecedented global challenges to human security, many scholars find their influence shrinking, a trend which has been viewed positively by some and negatively by others. For example, in the United States where certain ideas originating in the academy – often those most in accord with current national policy preferences – do get picked up in the policy world, the university is in danger of becoming less important for public policy-making than think tanks and corporations which pursue their own in-house research with all too predictable results. How much involvement with the policy world is possible or desirable? To what extent are scholars who choose not to enter the policy world responsible for how their ideas are used in that world? If our theories and/or interpretations have moral implications, can these implications be acceptable to policy-makers and are these implications tainted by political compromise? At times of heightened security there is more pressure on political conformity and more censorship of critical ideas. At such times, do scholars have a special responsibility to stand up for academic freedom? When research findings do not accord with national policy preferences, do those of us in the academy have a special mission to protect the arena of debate and dissent?
While certain scholars are committed to incremental policy improvement through direct engagement with policy research, for others disengagement and dissent are preferable. Still others believe we are all implicated in policy making and implementation whether we like it or not. Whatever our convictions about the problems and possibilities of independent or “value-neutral” research, do we make responsible choices about what we choose to study? Do we pick research topics because they are familiar, fashionable, offer job security, or because data are readily available? Do we choose research questions that are readily answerable and are we driven by methodologies that are conventionally taught in graduate schools? What about the research questions that are rarely asked and the voices that are rarely heard? Often answering such questions requires training beyond traditional methodological and other disciplinary boundaries. Is our field open to a variety of scholarly approaches and disciplines other than political science? How do we exercise responsibility in judging the scholarship of others, particularly when it falls outside what is conventionally defined as within disciplinary boundaries? What are our responsibilities to our research subjects for whom we profess to speak but whose voices we may co-opt? What are the consequences of hegemonic scholarship for those in the peripheries or for those whose lives are not part of the construction of conventional knowledge about world politics? Does our scholarship reinforce existing power structures and existing political, social and economic inequalities? Is Western international relations neutral with regard to scholarly and policy practices in areas outside the West? What are some of the political and cultural boundaries of spreading academic knowledge across the world? What implications does the presence of such boundaries carry for cross-cultural dialogue and knowledge cumulation? Western social science scholarship has been profoundly secular and rationalist. Do we have a responsibility to understand religious and cultural traditions other than our own whose commitment to other forms of knowledge may be seen as equally or more valid by their proponents?
As teachers we have a special responsibility to our students, many of whom take courses in international relations because they want to make a difference in the world. We bear responsibility for constructing the framework within which our students learn to understand the world and we are accountable for how we name the world, whose voices get heard, and whose are left out. All too often, what is claimed as universal knowledge is, in reality, knowledge about the West, particularly western, predominantly white, frequently male, elites. How can we include other subjects and other knowledge traditions in our teaching and research, given the silences, lack of data, and problems of translation both linguistic and cultural?
And our responsibilities extend well beyond the policy and academic worlds – to a variety of different communities where our actions and scholarship also have meaningful consequences. Do we as scholars bear responsibility for how our ideas are understood and used outside our immediate social and academic contexts? Do the boundaries of our responsibilities as citizens extend beyond national borders? Certain of us prefer to see ourselves as scholar/activists while others search for scientific detachment. To what extent should we express and advocate, through our teaching and scholarship, concerns of groups and individuals outside academia, such as governments, international organizations, grass-roots organizations and those on the margins of world politics? At the 2007 annual conference we wish to explore all of these questions, which are certain to continue to shape the discipline’s development. We encourage papers which express a wide variety of opinions on these topics.
