The International Solidarity Action Research Network (ISARN) mobilizes knowledge of new directions in interdisciplinary scholarship on solidarity. It includes scholars, activists, and cultural producers that are leading experts in sites and documents of historical international solidarity movements; methodological approaches to the study of social movements of decolonization, political and social equality, and redistributive justice; theoretical problems and ethical challenges confronted within South-South as well as North-South solidarities; the techniques and functions of cultural solidarity activism; and our responsibilities as critics and scholars in relation to international solidarity movements.
