The Nordic Political Science Association (NoPSA) is the Nordic extension of the national associations of political science in Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden.

  • take responsibility for the publication of a common journal, Scandinavian Political Studies (SPS);
  • organize Nordic conferences and workshops;
  • promote the establishment of common project groups, particularly within the field of Nordic comparative research; and
  • coordinate Nordic co-operation within the framework of international professional organizations, particularly the International Political Science Association (IPSA) and the European Consortium for Political Research (ECPR).
