Additional Call for Proposals for the 2021 IPSA World Congress is Now Open!

Dear colleagues,

Due to the evolution of the situation of COVID-19, the IPSA Executive Committee, in consultation with the Local Organizing Committee in Portugal and the Program Co-chairs, has therefore decided to postpone the 2020 IPSA World Congress to July 2021 (10-14 July).

We are pleased to announce the opening of an Additional Call for Proposals.

Please, see message from IPSA below.



Additional Call for Proposals for the 2021 IPSA World Congress is Now Open!

Dear Colleague,

Following the Lisbon World Congress postponement to 2021, we are pleased to inform you that an additional Call for Proposals for the 26th IPSA World Congress of Political Science (WC2021) on 10-14 July 2021 is now open!

We hope that this new call for proposals will give a chance to those who missed the previous submission deadline to participate in the 2021 Congress. Paper proposals that were accepted for the 2020 Program will remain in 2021 Congress Program. Paper authors who already have an accepted paper in the program (submitted for WC2020) should NOT submit new proposals.

Additional Call for Proposals

Paper and panel proposals on any political science-related subject are welcome. The 2021 Congress will have a diverse program under the theme New Nationalisms in an Open World.

You will find more information at wc2021.ipsa.org as well as important deadlines and submission guidelines.

You do not need to be an IPSA member to submit proposals. If you do not currently hold an IPSA account, you will be asked to create one. Once your proposal is accepted, you will have to become an IPSA member and register to attend the World Congress.

We invite you to view the Congress Sessions open to proposals.

Submit a Paper or Closed Panel by 20 October 2020.



Note that WC2021 will take place at NOVA University and no online/remote presentations are foreseen. However, if the COVID-19 pandemic persists, the Congress participation procedures and guidelines may be revised in the upcoming months. Any update will be announced on the Congress website.

Please refer to the Congress Postponed to 2021 page and the Important Dates for more information. The Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) section may also provide answers to some of your concerns.

If you have any questions, please contact us at wc2021@ipsa.org or reply to this message.

Thank you for your understanding, continuous collaboration and support. We hope you and your loved ones stay safe and healthy.

Best regards,

IPSA Congress Team
