The Finnish Political Science Association

The aim of the Finnish Political Science Association (FPSA) is to promote political science and the public interest for political science in Finland. FPSA is also actively participating in international political science research. The most essential forms of activities of the FPSA are publishing and organizing lectures and discussions. The Early Scholars Network (ESN) is the Finnish Political Science Association’s platform that connects emerging political scientists from across Finland. 

The association was founded in 1935, which makes it one of the oldest associations in its field. FPSA is a member of both the International Political Science Association IPSA and the Nordic Political Science Association NoPSA. The association is active in The Federation of Finnish Learned Societies and the Finnish Association for Scholarly Publishing. It’s also a member of the UN Association of Finland and UN Women.

The FPSA is the responsible publisher of the peer reviewed Politiikka journal and the Politiikasta website as well as the peer reviewed Pro et Contra book series.

The main annual scientific event of the Finnish Political Science Association will be next held in Jyväskylä from 10 to 12 May 2023. In 2023, the theme of the conference is Politics, language, and time.
