About the Conference


CESRAN International, Ca’ Foscari University of Venice, Universidade Autónoma de Lisboa, and OBSERVARE invite panel and paper proposals for the 11th Annual Conference on International Studies on 01-03 October 2024, in Venice, Italy.

This conference will bring together a range of academics and practitioners to discuss new research directions and discoveries in International Studies. CESRAN2024 (formerly known as IEPAS Conferences) will allow networking of new relationships, hearing the latest research, and presenting and publishing before a global audience.

The conference is also open to non-paper presenters, and we would encourage participation from non-academic sectors such as civil society, the private sector, national authorities and the media.

We look forward to seeing you in Venice in 2024!

The CESRAN Conference Series (formerly known as IEPAS Conference Series)

The conference series has kept bringing together a range of academics and practitioners to discuss new directions of research and discovery in International Studies. The CESRAN conference series aims not only to assemble worldwide researchers and professionals but also to increase knowledge of politics, IR, and economics through academic discussions.

The conference series has an intellectual hub for academic discussions with colleagues in the areas of politics, IR, and economics. Participants have found an excellent opportunity for presenting new research, exchanging information, and discussing current issues. We believe that our future conferences will further improve the development of knowledge in these fields.
