Welcome to the 2014 annual conference of the Australian Political Studies Association.
This website provides information about the conference program, the organizing committee, the schedule, and the location. Further information will be posted nearer the date of the event, including the detailed program and conference papers. International participants are warmly welcome to participate. Please do not hesitate to contact us with any queries about the arrangements.
The event will also mark the 80th anniversary of political studies in Australia, established with a politics degree first offered in 1934 at the University of Sydney . This development led eventually to the establishment in 1947 of the Department of Government and International Relations at the University of Sydney. Today, the Department has become a large, diverse and thriving community producing internationally-recognized research. Around 40 academic staff combine scholarly understanding of politics and international relations with work addressing practical policy problems and contemporary political challenges facing the world. The Department is proud to share the celebration of its anniversary by hosting this major event.
The APSA conference will be followed by the annual meeting of the Australian Study of Parliament Group hosted by the New South Wales Parliament, Sydney 1-3 October 2014. The theme is 'How representative is representative democracy?' See www.aspg.org.au
We greatly look forward to seeing you in Sydney in September 2014.
