SIS is unique among international affairs schools in the breadth and depth of its multidisciplinarity, with political scientists, economists, sociologists, anthropologists, geographers, demographers and specialists in international development, global health, energy, communications, and the environment working together. Experts in global governance, democratization, international organizations, climate change and resource provision, trade and international markets, corruption, transnational security, global health and others contribute to a greater understanding of the theoretical underpinnings and practice of international affairs in both scholarship and practice. Regional expertise is also varied, encompassing the Middle East and North Africa, Latin America, South Asia, Southeast Asia, East Asia, Europe, Sub-Saharan Africa, and Russia and Eurasia. This multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary work undertaken at the SIS is rooted in academic literature but also increasingly applied to policy-relevant communities.
