IPSE – International Politics and Security Spring School originates in the MA Program in European and Global Studies, held by the Department of Political Science, Law and International Studies of the University of Padua.IPSE addresses the main changes in International Politics & Security, thanks to an historical and integrated approach: it relies on a network of 10 European Universities, involving worldwide well-known experts that study in-depth this phenomenon from a multidisciplinary perspective.
In the last decades, due to a pressing rise of terrorists attacks, the studies related to political violence have known a new wave of interest among academics, scholars, intellectuals in general. From history to political science, from sociology to economy and international relations, IPSE offers a unique opportunity to learn the most relevant scientific developments in this area of knowledge. IPSE is open to MA and PhD students, and early postdoctoral students who have a specific interest in these topics.
The first edition (May 27-30, 2020) is dedicated to the analysis of the terrorist threat and security politics. Main topics will be: the impact of terrorism over international and national systems; mobility and security; cybersecurity; radicalization. Given the seminar structure of the Spring School, IPSE wants to be a fertile moment of discussion among senior scholars and young researchers on the most updated research in the field.
