ABOUT ISA

Internal Organization

The affairs of the ISA are governed by the Assembly of Councils which is composed of all members of the Council of National Associations and the Research Council.

The Council of National Associations consists of one delegate from each member country. The Research Council is composed of representatives of all Research Committees and sponsors scientific activities of the ISA.

The rules of functioning of the Research Committees are detailed in:

Every four years at the time of the World Congress, the Assembly of Councils elect the President and Vice-Presidents. Each Council elect 8 members of the Executive Committee.

The Executive Committee administers the affairs of the Association between these meetings, while the ISA Secretariat executes the decisions and handles administrative matters. Officers of the Executive Committee serve on at least one of the following sub-committees:

The remit of the Research Coordinating Committee is to approve the formation of Thematic Groups, to examine applications for the establishment of Working Groups and Research Committees, to review their activities and to put forward to the Executive Committee recommendations on both particular cases and general policy.
