CRIPT — Contemporary Research on International Political Theory is one of oldest working groups within BISA, a group with a long tradition of fostering research in international political theory.
CRIPT aims to create a forum for those interested in the application of political and critical social theory to world politics. CRIPT is keenly committed to supporting the work of early-career researchers and sponsors events that provide career development opportunities for the next generation of theoretically oriented IR scholars.
Since January 2017 the group convenor is:
Dr Antonio Cerella, Senior Lecturer in Politics and International Studies, Kingston University, London.
The working group has a loose structure and welcomes ideas and suggestions from both its members and non-members. It encourages especially junior academics (Lecturer level), post-doctoral researchers and PhD students to become its members. Support from more senior academics is very welcome.
CRIPT runs a mailing list and is happy to disseminate information about events related to International Political Theory to its members and mailing list subscribers. Please, e-mail the convenors if wanting to spread your news or join the mailing list.
Like other BISA working groups, CRIPT participates in key BISA activities, contributes to its annual conference by submitting and sponsoring panels and roundtables and by organising or co-organising other research events for which it seeks funding from BISA and other funding bodies.
