Call For Papers


Political Studies Association of Ireland Call For Papers

However, as is the tradition of the PSAI Annual Conference, paper and panel proposals are welcome in all areas of politics and international relations, not just on the conference’s headline theme and not just those with an Irish dimension. This can include (though is not confined to):

  • political theory and philosophy
  • political parties and elections
  • government and policy making
  • peace and conflict studies
  • international relations
  • local government and administration
  • political communication
  • political history
