IAPSS Regional at a Glance

On 31st October 2018, IAPSS celebrated its 20th Anniversary. To celebrate this important achievement, IAPSS launched the Regionalisation Project, with the aim of making IAPSS a more accessible, inclusive and global association. In order to respond and interact with students in every region, IAPSS should be able to organize itself in all parts of the world. 

From this initiative. We have: IAPSS Africa, IAPSS Asia, IAPSS Europe, IAPSS Latin America, IAPSS Oceania, and IAPSS USA & Canada (Refer to regional Links for more information) are born and ready to give opportunities to all the political science students from all parts of the world. By regionalizing, IAPSS creates new pathways to inclusiveness. IAPSS understands that entities with regional focus and responsibility are far better able to understand language barriers, cultural traits, or particular interests of students in the region.

Through the incorporation of a federal system, IAPSS fosters a sustainable environment for an organization that aspires to be recognised as an important actor in the field of youth education advocacy and representation of students in all four corners of the globe. By fostering regional partnerships, IAPSS’ presence will be established on a much more local level through wisely tapping into local knowledge and connections of our partners. These create local points of access and participation for those who do not have the means to travel long-distance to our core events. 

Regionalising IAPSS does not mean disaggregating, but de-centralising. Regionalization reshapes our identity. We become  an organization that draws power from expertise and not hierarchy, which is where our full potential lies.

    Covering more than 50 countries – spanning from the ruins of Jordan in the West, the jungles of the Timor-Leste in the East, to the mountains of Japan in the north, the IAPSS Asia Outreach Program provides an alternative avenue to students, as well as early-career researchers, and academics, to discuss key-important political issues across Asia. Furthermore, IAPSS Asia focuses more on the socio-politico side of Asian Studies, which has predominantly been the central academic discipline in studying the region.
