[
logo of the International Association for Political Science Students (IAPSS).] The International Association for Political Science Students (IAPSS) is an international organization which represents and links students of political science, international relations and related fields.

Following the 2003 General Assembly of IAPSS the association has maintained a permanent seat in Ljubljana, Slovenia.

IAPSS represents some 10,000 students of political science worldwide and works in partnership with the International Political Science Association (IPSA) and other international bodies to develop the study of political science worldwide.

History

In 1996 political science students from Leiden, The Netherlands visited colleagues in Rome, Italy. At this meeting the idea of an international association for students in political science was discussed. In 1998 the first General Assembly of what would come to be known as IAPSS was held in Leiden, The Netherlands and the association was incorporated under Dutch law in that year.

By the end of 1999 IAPSS had grown to encompass 20 member associations from 15 countries across Europe and Africa. By 2008 IAPSS had gained member associations from most European states as well as Peru, US, Russia and Mexico.

Today IAPSS has member associations from more than 40 countries worldwide and individual members from even more. Including individual members and the members of Association Members, IAPSS claims some 10,000 affiliated students on every continent.

IAPSS General Assembly

The IAPSS General Assembly is the main decision making body of the association. The General Assembly meets annually to decide on the future direction of IAPSS and to elect students to act as members of the various IAPSS committees.
