Swedish Political Science Association


The Swedish Political Science Association ("Swepsa"), founded in 1970, is the disciplinary organisation for political scientists in Sweden. Swepsa has more than 250 members from Universities and University Colleges in Sweden. Membership is open to everyone with an interest in political science. 

The purpose of Swepsa is to promote a critical debate of the aims and means of political science and its function in the society at large, to inform about research in the field, to stimulate co-operation between political scientists from different departments in Sweden, and to represent Swedish political science in international cooperation, e.g. in NOPSA, ECPR and IPSA, i.e. the Nordic, European and international organisations respectively.

Chairman: Magnus Jerneck, Lund
