International Organization(s) in Crisis, St Gallen, Switzerland

Swiss Network of International Studies (SNIS) Biennial Conference

During the past two decades, practitioners and scholars have witnessed a series of crises – financial, health, security, democratic, and climate – that have increased risk and uncertainty for individuals, states, and international organizations. As we seemingly head into an era of multiple and overlapping crises simultaneously unfolding at different speeds, what are the consequences and prospects for international organisation and its attendant organizations? How are international organisations affected by and responding to a world in crisis? For the SNIS 2023 conference to be held at the University of St. Gallen, we invite paper proposals that focus on this broad theme and consider its implications across four tracks: technology and security, norms and normativity, governance and policy, as well as methods and methodologies.


There are no registration or participations fees for this conference. Catering will be provided by the organizers. Moreover, a few travel and accommodation grants are available for scholars in need.

The deadline for submissions is November 14th, 2022.
