Dear IGGI Community,
We are excited to announce that this year’s Western Political Science Association meeting will be held in person from March 10-12, 2022 in Portland, Oregon. The Asian and Pacific Islander American (APIA) Mini-Conference within a conference will be held all day on Friday, March 11, 2021.
As we come out of the pandemic and an era of hate crimes against the Asian American community, we will also be celebrating the 75th anniversary of the Western Political Science Association. We hope that you will join us on March 11, 2021!
