International Society of Political Psychology

ISPP Summer Academy

27-29 June 2017 in Edinburgh, Scotland

The inaugural International Society of Political Psychology – Summer Academy was launched with great success in 2011, just prior to the annual meeting in Istanbul, Turkey. We will be accepting applications for the 7th annual ISPP-SA, to be held in conjunction with the 2017 Annual Meeting in Edinburgh, Scotland.

The ISPP Summer Academy is designed as a three-day workshop, to be held each year immediately prior to the ISPP annual meeting, and aims to train interested faculty and students in both foundational and cutting-edge research in the area of political psychology. The Summer Academy’s central objective is to spread interest and promote training in political psychology around the world. Holding the Summer Academy in conjunction with the ISPP conference provides its fellows a unique opportunity to engage with a truly international mix of participants. Summer Academy Fellows receive membership in ISPP for one year, and their registration fee for the conference is waived.

The application process for the ISPP Summer Academy 2017 is expected to open in early 2017. For an idea of the types of courses offered during the Summer Academy, read about last year's courses and instructors HERE.


The application deadline for the ISPP Summer Academy is typically in the first quarter of the calendar year.

Applications will be reviewed and final admission decisions will be delivered within 1-2 months after the application deadline.

Applications received after the deadline may not be considered.

Your application must contain:

1. The completed application form.

2. A short CV

The lectures at the Summer Academy will be delivered in English.
