10th Anniversary of the Implementation of the IPSA Secretariat in Montréal

The International Political Science Association will celebrate the 10th anniversary of the implementation of its permanent Secretariat in Montreal on March 30th 2016. For the occasion, past President Max Kaase and current President Aiji Tanaka will address the conditions that led to the permanent settling of the Secretariat in Québec, as well as the latest accomplishments of IPSA since its relocation in Montreal.

We are also proud to announce a lecture by Ronald Inglehart, 2014 Mattei Dogan Prize Winner and co-recipient of the 2011 Skytte Prize intitled "25 Years of the World Values Survey: What’s Next?". The lecture will be followed by a reception which will gather representatives from the city of Montreal, Concordia University and members of the provincial and federal governments.

The event will serve as a reflection on the current state of political science and the purposes and achievements of international organizations such as IPSA.

More details will be available at the beginning of 2016.

We hope that you could be part of this important milestone in the life of the International Political Science Association and also enrich its legacy!
