Area and International Studies: Stakeholders


Book Section

© 2015 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved. In most nations, the stakeholders in area and international studies (A and IS) are government agencies. However, in the United States, A and IS stakeholders are found in education and the private sector as well as in government, resulting in a high level of organizational development, complexity, and productivity. A and IS represent a crossing point between academic disciplines, research and policy institutions, numerous ethnic foreign-language communities, various international exchange organizations, foreign and domestic corporate interests, national security agencies, and issue-oriented oppositional movements. As a result, the A and IS enterprise is contested by shifting coalitions defined by such factors as professional self-interest, intellectual paradigms, national security threats, and ideological agendas.
