THE POLITICAL PSYCHOLOGY STANDING GROUP CO-SPONSORS ISPP SUMMER SCHOOL IN POLITICAL PSYCHOLOGY
Our ECPR Political Psychology Standing Group will host one specialized course on European Political Psychology Developments and Methodologies, to be offered at the 2014 ISPP Summer Academy taking place on July 1-3, 2014 in Rome. The Summer Academy offers a new programme every year comprised of 5-7 specialized courses designed for young scholars. It aims at advanced postgraduate students or academics who are likely to teach political psychology and/or conduct political psychology research in the future, but do not have the opportunity to follow political psychology courses at their home institution. The summer school will host about 40 students who seek to advance their training in political psychology.
