My deepest apologies

I would like to express my deepest apologies to Professors Wendy Wong and Sarah Stroup and to all our members on the posting of a highly insensitive photo in the promotion of Professors Stroup and Wong’s article on PSNow, “The Agency and Authority of International NGOs” appearing in Perspectives on Politics, Volume 14, Issue 01, March 2016.

APSA is committed to the highest standards of equity, diversity and inclusion and accuracy in the representation and promotion of political science scholarship.   We have implemented immediate measures to ensure these standards are uniformly upheld in our future social media programming, and we will be undertaking a rigorous monitoring and  review of our editorial and posting policies on an ongoing basis.

In addition, we also encourage all members to follow our postings and provide feedback.
