 “International Politics, Old and New Challenges” (November 8th)



Coordinator and Leading Institution: Prof. Valentine Lomellini (Dept. of Political Science, Law and International Studies – University of Padua)

IPSE – International Politics and Security School originates in the MA Program in European and Global Studies, held by the Department of Political Science, Law and International Studies of the University of Padua.
IPSE addresses the main changes in International Politics & Security, thanks to an historical and integrated approach: it relies on a network of 20 European Universities, involving worldwide well-known experts that study this phenomenon from a multidisciplinary perspective.
From history to political science, from sociology to economy and international relations, IPSE offers a unique opportunity to learn the most relevant scientific developments in this area of knowledge. IPSE is open to MA and PhD students, and early postdoctoral students who have a specific interest in these topics.


The goal of the JUNIOR CONFERENCE is to provide a setting for PhD and MA students to present their work and receive feedback on their doctoral/MA research plan and progress. Students will be offered the opportunity to articulate and discuss their problem statement, goals, methods, and results. The event also aims at providing students with guidance on various aspects of their research from established researchers and the other students participating in the sessions. Finally, the event seeks to motivate students in the development of their scientific curiosity and facilitate their networking within the research community.

Admissions are reserved to MA and PhD students and early postdoctoral students with the following background: European Studies, Political Science, Sociology, International Relations, Law, Economics, History of International Relations, Contemporary History and open to other disciplines.
