About Us

BISA – the British International Studies Association – promotes the study and research of international politics. BISA’s Postgraduate Network, or PGN for short, was created in 2010 to enhance the BISA membership experience for postgraduate scholars in International Relations and related disciplines through academic/professional development and networking opportunities.

Membership is free for all postgraduate members of BISA and every year we organise multiple activities, including:

  • PGN only panels at the BISA annual conference
  • A PhD workshop
  • A funding competition for organising postgraduate events
  • A ‘meet the editors’ session at the BISA Annual Conference

We have our own Facebook page and Twitter account. We’re also on LinkedIn and Academia.edu. You can email us at bisapgnexec@gmail.com.
