Academic Convention

The IAPSS Academic Convention aims at both providing students of political science, international relations 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 and issues around the theme

Each year, the IAPSS Academic Convention does not only bring together students from all over the world. We always have a multiplicity of experts from academia, civil society institutions, the media, policy-makers, and think tanks to join our events and supplement a great academic program. In student panels, panelists will present their research (concerning the convention theme) to an audience of fellow students, after which there will be interactive discussions. Participants also have the chance to learn valuable skills in research workshops we offer, in addition to an Oxford-style debate and much-anticipated lectures. In the evenings, a social program allows participants to relax, network, and explore the convention-city!
