The IAPSS World Congress is the largest annual event hosted by IAPSS – the International Association for Political Science Students. As customary for our biggest event of the year we are expecting 250 students from around the world to join us in the “City of Light” of Paris, France, to examine this year’s Congress theme – ‘Diversity and Globalization’.
Taking place between the 24th and 28th of April 2018 at the Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne University, we have a fascinating program of student-led panels, expert talks and interactive workshops and sessions. This is not to mention the exciting opportunities to network with fellow students and experts, as well as exploring beautiful Paris! Join us at the largest conference for students of Political Science, International Relations and related studies in 2018!

What Can You Expect?

An exciting academic and social programme with a broad range of high profile scholars and experts will await you in Paris. The IAPSS World Congress 2018 will bring together a multiplicity of experts from academia, civil society institutions, the media, policy-makers and think tanks. With 24 student panels, 100 panelists will be provided with the unique opportunity to discuss their (your?) research and work-in-progress in political science, international relations and related sub-fields with an international audience. In addition, we also expect around 150 observing students to join the conference in order to get familiar with the format of an academic conference and participate in lively discussions.

Studies on research methods (political methodology) are also invited.
