IPSA 2018

25th IPSA World Congress of Political Science.

Sat, 21 Jul 2018 – Wed, 25 Jul 2018

25th World Congress of Political Science

It is with great pleasure that we invite our colleagues and collaborators throughout the world to Brisbane, Australia for the 25th IPSA World Congress of Political Science.

The Congress will provide an opportunity for you to network with global scholars. It will have particularly strong local and regional representation, because it will integrate the annual conference of the Australian Political Studies Association and  the biennial Oceanic Conference on International Studies.

The Congress will have a rich program under the theme Borders and Margins, which will be coordinated by the Program Co-Chairs Professor Terrell Carver and Professor Füsun Türkmen.

Call for Proposal

Due to ongoing demand, the deadline for Call for Proposals has been extended to 25 October 2017 for the 25th IPSA World Congress of Political Science (21-25 July 2018, Brisbane, Australia).

We hope that this extension will give everyone a new chance to submit a paper or panel proposal. Hundreds of high-quality paper proposals and panels have already been submitted and we would like to thank everyone who has submitted an abstract. Don’t miss this last opportunity to present your paper and meet prominent political scientists across the world under the theme Borders and Margins.

Proposals for panels and papers on any subject within political science are welcome. The Congress Theme “Borders and Margins” will be featured in specially organized topical sessions and events. Anyone can submit a proposal for a panel or paper. Proposers do not need to be a member of IPSA. If you do not currently hold an IPSA account, you will be asked to create one before submitting your proposal for a panel or paper.
