Vision and Mission


Political independence:

We value political independence, as we believe the Association should not speak or act in a single voice on political issues.


We value professionalism as we believe that every member should be committed to and act responsibly towards the APSS community.

Respecting diversity:

We value diversity, as we believe tolerance is indispensable for national and international communication and cooperation and unity.


We value knowledge as it fundamentally creates power to critical thinking for politics that we promote to acquire also outside arenas provided by universities and social surroundings.


“To advance the dialogue of politics and political science by comparing empirical phenomenon with scholarly insights into how societies work, by committing to support next generation politics and by shaping a mutually-understood society”
