Section on International Relations

What is the Section of International Relations (SIR) at the Portuguese Political Science Association?

SIR was established as a platform for dialogue among professionals in the field of International Relations in Portugal. It was created in the framework of the Portuguese Political Science Association, consolidating, at an early stage, an important role as a point of convergence and reflexivity over the challenges faced by this area of knowledge. Its main objectives include supporting the development of an academic community in this field, in Portugal, the dissemination of its work and the advancement of its professional interests.

Our activities

SIR develops activities in three main areas: scientific, pedagogical and knowledge dissemination. Activities can privilege a dimension or have an impact on more than one strand. For example, it organizes lectures, days commemorating international dates such as European Day, workshops, round tables, etc.

Current Coordination Team

The Section of International Relations is managed by a Coordination Team, with a mandate for two years. The current team began the mandate in April 2018, with a project that aims to develop the internal communication among the members, promote the work in IR that is made in Portugal, namely among non-academic audiences, as well as, support the production of high quality academic knowledge in IR in Portuguese language.
