Antonio Visani Deputy Chair
I am a passionate student majoring in International Relations. Thanks to my curiosity and motivation, I am having outstanding academic results and I am having the opportunity to study in Ghislieri College, one of Italy's most prestigious Honours Colleges. My strong points are analytical thinking -once a problem comes up, I do not get anxious, but I divide it into different parts and I solve them one by one-, responsibility -when I accept a task, I do everything I can to carry it out- and curiosity. In the future, I see myself as an Italian diplomat, who works in a changing international system to strengthen multilateral institutions.
Francesco Chen Outreach Coordinator
Francesco is a Finance student at Bocconi University of Milan in the double major program International Economics and Finance. He is an Italian born Chinese with a bilingual background and speaks fluently English, Russian and Spanish. He is passionate about social changes and financial drivers taking part in many associations and volunteering organizations. Academics are not the only feature that characterizes his view but especially human relations and cultural enrichment are certainly keypoints. He looks for new challenges to enrich his horizons and broaden his network. Nevertheless, he believes that smart work and positivity can drive success and self-fulfillment.
Jakub Zientala Liaison Coordinator
A young professional with a deep interest in International Affairs, world politics, and the use of new technologies. However, my true passions lie in promoting European Affairs and the democratization of the European Union. I am an aspiring changemaker with experience in international politics, especially in the area of YPS, Sustainable Development Goals and European Foreign Affairs.

IAPSS Ukraine

IAPSS Ukraine was established by IAPSS around 2011 in response to a significant number of political science students in Ukraine expressing interest in getting involved with initiatives of their counterparts around the globe and hosting their own events and initiatives. In 2019, this partnership was formalized with an agreement signed by officials from IAPSS Ukraine, IAPSS Europe, and IAPSS Global. IAPSS Ukraine has hundreds of members across its country who elect their own executive team.

If you are interested in getting involved with IAPSS Ukraine, you can find their Facebook page here or email their president at ukraine1@iapss.org.

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 such a heavily globalized community, it is important to have representation and participation from students around the globe. From this project, IAPSS Europe is born and ready to give opportunities to all the political science students based in Europe.

The field of political science finds its roots in the European continent, with Europe often playing a crucial role in the development of both the scientific field and the sphere of political practice. The European continent is also home to some of the most historic educational institutions and think tanks. It is therefore imperative for IAPSS Europe to remain on top of these developments and enlarge its presence.

Our main goal is to create a solid network of political science students in Europe, giving them opportunities and tools for professional growth, such as research projects, conferences, winter/summer schools, webinars, etc. Any student of political science – at any level – can participate in the formation of this organization. We provide a platform for you to express your ideas and share your research. Check our announcements section to learn how to participate with us.

31 октября 2018 года Международная ассоциация студентов, изучающих политические науки (IAPSS) отметила свое 20-летие. Чтобы отметить это важное достижение, IAPSS запустила проект регионализации с целью сделать IAPSS более доступной, всеобъемлющей и глобальной ассоциацией. В таком сильно глобализированном сообществе важно иметь представительство и участие студентов во всем мире. Из этого проекта IAPSS Europe рождается и готова предоставить возможности всем студентам из политологии, базирующимся в Европе.
Область политических наук уходит своими корнями на европейский континент, причем Европа часто играет решающую роль в развитии как научной области, так и сферы политической практики. Европейский континент также является домом для некоторых из самых исторических учебных заведений и аналитических центров. Поэтому крайне важно, чтобы IAPSS Europe оставалась на вершине этих событий и расширила свое присутствие.
Наша главная цель – создать надежную сеть студентов политологии в Европе, предоставить им возможности и инструменты для профессионального роста, такие как исследовательские проекты, конференции, зимние / летние школы, вебинары и т. Д. Любой студент политологии – на любом уровне – могут участвовать в формировании этой организации. Мы предлагаем платформу для того, чтобы вы могли выразить свои идеи и поделиться своими исследованиями. Ознакомьтесь с нашим разделом объявлений, чтобы узнать, как внести свой вклад в это общее дело
