Consortium for Comparative Research on Regional Integration and Social Cohesion (RISC) Individual Memberships


The RISC Consortium has engaged scholars and practitioners in comparative, cross-regional dialogues on the human and environmental impacts of regional integration processes since 2007. Through its activities, it has fostered cross-regional dialogue on social cohesion and promoted cohesion amongst socially conscious members in different world regions. Multilingual (English, Spanish, French) and interdisciplinary in nature, the consortium facilitates exchanges and reinforces its commitments to core values including mutual respect, solidarity and sustainable development. More than an association, RISC has established a consolidated community of members dedicated to this vision. Starting 2018, RISC is pleased to announce that it is opening memberships to individuals.
