Faculty Survey

The 2014 TRIP survey includes IR scholars in 32 countries and 9 languages to examine teaching and research trends and foreign policy view in the IR discipline. TRIP surveys all international relations scholars employed at a college or university who have an affiliation with a political science department or school of public policy and who teach or conduct research on issues that cross international borders. A full summary of the methodology can be found in “International Relations in the U.S. Academy (ISQ, 2011).

Methodology

We seek to identify and survey all faculty members at colleges and universities in thirty-two national settings who do research in the IR sub-field of political science and/or who teach international relations courses. The overwhelming majority of our respondents have jobs in departments of political science, politics, government, social science, international relations, international studies, or in professional schools associated with universities. Given our definition of "IR scholar" – individuals with an active affiliation with a university, college, or professional school – we excluded researchers currently employed in government, private firms, or think tanks (except where instructed otherwise by our country partners). Additionally, our definition is not broad enough to include scholars at professional schools of international affairs who study economics, sociology, law, or other disciplines. As in previous years, we attempted to include any scholar who taught or did research on trans-border issues as they relate to some aspect of politics.

We identified the population of faculty to be surveyed in all thirty-two countries using similar methods. We identified IR professors at schools through a systematic series of web searches, emails, and communications with departments and individual scholars. We also consulted with our country partners to ensure that these lists were complete. We identified a total of 12,602 individuals in the thirty-two countries in this report who met the TRIP criteria for inclusion. Of these individuals, 5,139 responded for a response rate of 40.78% and a margin of error of +/- 1.05%.*

*We continue to code free response entries in the survey, as well as conduct post-hoc analysis of the survey sample to ensure its integrity. As these processes are completed, we will update the data to reflect any changes.
