Czech Political Science Association

The Czech Political Science Association is a national association of political scientists based in Czech universities. Our mission is to promote research and innovative teaching in our field. We communicate science to policymakers, the general public, and other key stakeholders. Finally, we organize workshops and seminars, share calls, and  collaborate on research. 

The official peer-reviewed journal of the Czech Political Science Association is Acta Politologica. This journal is published in cooperation with the Institute of Political Studies at Charles University. The journal is indexed in the Scopus database.  The association is a collective member of the International Political Science Association.
