PSA Departmental Leadership Conference

This key PSA event is an opportunity for senior managers and leaders in Politics Departments to convene and discuss issues which impact upon the discipline as well as across the social sciences.


The latest programme is available here and issues for discussion include: research funding; early career researchers’ experiences of parental leave support and the composition of women in the UK profession; and the 'state of the discipline'. Professor Kimberly Hutchings, Vice Chair of the Politics and international Studies REF sub-panel will also discuss next steps and future planning.
