The central mission of International Studies and Programs is supporting the international research of a talented and growing cadre of international studies faculty. What began as a corps of two research fellows has grown to 29 today, establishing ISP's unique role as the only research-oriented international studies center in the state of Missouri. The books and articles published by International Studies and Programs fellows reflect an impressive productivity and multidisciplinary diversity.
