CONTENTS
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 11 European Universities, involving worldwide well-known experts that study this phenomenon from a multidisciplinary perspective.
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 Second edition (24th-28th of May 2021) is dedicated to crisis management policies and approaches.
Main topics will embrace the impact of terrorism over international and national systems; mobility and security; populism as a potential threat to democracy and the Covid 19 pandemic.
Nonetheless, the commemoration of 20 years since “9/11”, the terrorist attack on the Twin Tours, will open a debate on memory and terrorism at international level.
Given the structure of the Spring School, IPSE represents a fertile moment for discussion on the most updated research in the field among senior scholars and young researchers, including undergraduate students.

Admissions are reserved to up to 30 MA, PhD students and early postdoctoral students with the following background: European Studies, Political Science, Sociology, International Relations, Law, Economics, History of International Relations, Contemporary History and open to other disciplines.

Students coming from partner universities are selected and nominated by partner universities.
