IAPSS World Congress

The IAPSS World Congress is the largest annual event organised by the International Association for Political Science Students. Bringing together about 200 students of political science and related disciplines from all over the world, the Congress deals with a topic corresponding to the IAPSS Annual Theme. The theme for 2018 will be Diversity and Globalization.

With a truly international audience which crosses all sub-disciplines of political science, international relations and neighbouring social sciences, and indeed all student career stages, the IAPSS World Congress is a unique event for individual academic learning, vivid debate and networking.
