More than a dozen CIGI experts, as well as other staff, attended ISA (with a conference theme in 2011 of "Global Governance: Political Authority in Transition"), with some CIGI personnel appearing on panels to discuss a wide variety of issues in international affairs. At the CIGI booth, various new publications were available, including "Challenges and Opportunities for the French Presidency: The G20 - 2011 and Beyond," a conference report and background papers from CIGI's G20 Working Group. About 5,000 participants attended the conference, including thousands of university professors and graduate students in international relations courses across North America.
