International Association for Political Science Students


The IAPSS is an international, politically independent, non-profit, student-run platform for political science students.  IAPSS aims to have a global impact in the political science discipline by providing information on current events in the field to its members through its website, newsletter, and e-groups.  It comprises 20 association members and approximately 10,000 individuals from over 40 countries worldwide.  IAPSS evolved from a loose network to an association with a permanent secretariate in Nijmegen, the Netherlands, where a student team works to initiate and coordinate projects and activities on the local, regional, and international level.
