Join us August 31 – September 3, 2017, in San Francisco for the 113th APSA Annual Meeting to address the latest scholarship in political science while exploring the 2017 theme, “The Quest for Legitimacy: Actors, Audiences and Aspirations.” APSA and the 2017 Program Chairs Amaney A. Jamal, Princeton University and Susan Hyde, University of California, Berkeley, look forward to your participation in panels and sessions prepared by APSA’s 55 divisions and numerous related groups at the 2017 APSA Annual Meeting. San Francisco is undeniably one of the world’s great cities. Located along the Northern California at the state’s distinctive bend in the coast, the region has an alluring magic that stretches beyond the bay to diverse cities with nightlife and trend-setting cuisine. The Bay Area is also home to some of the world’s finest wine country, including Napa Valley and Sonoma, plus waterfront towns, dramatic beaches, and the tech-savvy southern end of the bay known as the Silicon Valley, where lunchtime ideas at Google, Facebook, and Apple, turn into the next brilliant innovation.
Barbara Budrich Publishers and Budrich UniPress will be presented through our partner: Columbia University Press. Visit our booth!
2017 General Conference, Oslo
The 2017 General Conference will be held at the University of Oslo, which was founded in 1811 and was the first University in Norway.
The General Conference is the platform for lively discussion, exchange of ideas and the best thinking in the discipline, and is Europe’s biggest gathering of political scientists. Attracting scholars throughout the world, and at all stages of their career, the conference covers the full range of political science. The Academic Programme will consist of lectures, Roundtables and themed Sections and Panels on topical subjects. Each Panel will include 4 – 5 Papers. The Programme will be very broad with Sections covering all the main areas of political science, political theory and international relations.
The key to a successful conference is teaming challenging academic content with a stimulating plenary timetable, which also includes social functions that facilitate effective networking. The General Conference does just this through roundtables, a plenary lecture and an interesting social programme. Oslo, with its world-class museums and galleries, fjords, forests, hills and lakes, also promises to be an exciting backdrop to the Conference.

11th Pan-European Conference on International Relations
Organised by the European International Studies Association and Institut Barcelona d’Estudis Internacionals.
The origins of the discipline of International Relations is a contested question, yet there is one common thread that connects many of the acclaimed reconstructions of the disciplines genesis: IR constituted itself as a clearly demarcated and institutionalised discipline at a violent historical conjuncture marked by world wars, colonial occupations, economic crises and a deeply unequal world order. For many scholars, IR symbolised a collective effort to confront these questions, and design the conditions of a more stable, peaceful world. Fast-forward to 2016, the contemporary challenges that face societies and the world at large are similar to those that helped trigger the formation of the discipline. Recurring crises of capitalism, the strengthening of racist discourses and political forces across the global North and South, continuing military interventions and brutal political violence, as well as the increasingly grim prospect of environmental catastrophe, throw into sharp relief the urgency of utilising our scholarship to interrogate and unmask the causes and perpetrators of these crises. We are, once again, at a historical intersection shaped by political, economic and environmental predicaments at which we need to ask what kind of a role IR should play in navigating these crises.
11th Pan-European Conference on International Relations invites the International Studies community to reflect upon the politics and responsibilities of International Relations scholarship in an age of crises. We particularly welcome contributions that investigate the ways in which the discipline can help design political, economic and social alternatives beyond the existing configurations that underpin the current crises. While we encourage participants to submit proposals in line with the conference theme, we are open to and invite contributions from all sub-fields of International Studies, as well as from the other branches of the social sciences that are concerned with similar questions and themes.
