The Council on Comparative Studies (CCS) was formed in 1999 as a forum for advancing work in comparative international studies at American University in accordance with the University's Strategic Plan, the concerns and interests of Provost Kerwin and the Deans and faculty in comparative studies in both SPA and SIS. The Council seeks to create a common forum for faculty and students with broad interests in comparative and international politics, social change, and political economy.
CCS bridges different schools and departments at the University, and it covers all global regions.
