About Delegations

IAPSS regularly sends delegations to conferences of its international partner associations. These include primarily the International Political Science Association (IPSA), the European Consortium for Political Research (ECPR) and the International Studies Association (ISA). Delegations consist of IAPSS members presenting their papers and/or acting as Chair or Discussant at a panel. At least one member of the IAPSS Board is present at the respective conference, coordinates the delegation, and also uses the opportunity of meeting partners from across the globe to discuss and plan joint projects, initiatives, and events. Delegations hold one or multiple panels, sometimes also a section. The latter acts as a cluster of multiple panels focusing on one greater topic in current political science debate and research. However, meetings with our partners at the venue to discuss the future paths of our partnership also mark an important component. In this regard, delegations always depict a great chance for us to discuss upcoming projects and joint initiatives. On some occasions, students and young researchers outside of IAPSS but with an interest in being IAPSS members and part of an IAPSS Delegation are also offered to apply via an open application process.
