The IAPSS Autumn Convention 2017 aims at both providing students of political science and related disciplines a platform to present their work and research within a variety of student panels, and bringing you together with experts from the academia, politics, the media and civil society to discuss and examine topics around the Convention’s theme “Truth and Politics” – in-depth.
Each day is divided in 4 time slots of 90 minutes length each. 7 slots are exclusively reserved for several student panels running in parallel. Three to five students will present their research in form of short paper presentations at each panel, facilitated by a panel chair and a discussion by a panel discussant and the audience present.
High-profile lectures will bring you together with leading political scientists of our time, in an open atmosphere enabling both the speaker and the audience to discuss the lecture’s topic freely and without limits of thinking.
4 time slots of again 90 minutes length each are scheduled for multiple roundtables, workshops and panel discussions. A highly interactive environment will enable you and the academic guests to elaborate on concepts, theories and arguments.
