Oceania in the IAPSS world currently consisting of Australia and New Zealand has a great variety of political science researchers who have highly contributed to international research. Regarding the global position of this region close to the fast-evolving Asian nations, political science in Oceania will shape the future global political environment.
For strengthening our presence in Oceania we have launched our regional chapter in this area. Our chapter is going to connect students with interest in politics amongst Australia and New Zealand, conducting events and fostering research initiatives. Following we introduce one of our Regional Chairs, Flavia Zimmermann.
