    2007

    In November 2007 the European Confederation of Political Science Associations (ECPSA) was founded in Berlin, Germany. It is currently a union of twenty-three national and international associations of political science in Europe.

  • ECPSA was established to promote the discipline’s interests and pursue its professional goals. It seeks to make political science more meaningful in public debate and policy-making.

  • Among other things, the union of national associations is a reaction to the increasing harmonisation of the European higher education landscape. ECPSA creates a framework for the cooperation and exchange in Europe related to all aspects of political science as an academic discipline and its professional organisation.

    ECPSA has adopted a mission statement which can be found on this website.
