The Policy Studies Organization has a major interest in the development of curriculum and co-sponsors events throughout the year. Giving members an opportunity to meet each other, to hear panels and attend receptions where the PSO leadership is present, and to visit the display booths where recent PSO publications, including the Policy Studies Journal, Review of Policy Research, Politics & Policy, Digest of Middle East Studies, Latin American Policy, Policy & Internet, World Medical & Health Policy, Poverty & Public Policy, Risk, Hazards & Crisis in Public Policy, and various Lexington Press series are displayed.

Policy Studies Organization Meetings 2011-2012

The PSO sponsors and organizes several academic meetings throughout the year, whose seasonal regularity has become an important characteristic. These meetings are always interesting opportunities for co-sponsorship that tend to end up in journals' special issues or part of our book series program.
