The newly established Spanish Politics Specialist Group, founded in late 2019, brings together academics interested in Spanish politics and provides a hub for such academics based in the UK and beyond. The Group aims to raise the profile of Spain within UK-based political science as an important country to research and write about and to facilitate contact between scholars engaged in the study of contemporary Spanish politics. We welcome both qualitative and quantitative approaches, as well as both single-country studies and cross-country comparative scholarship. Through our network and events, we will facilitate and expand opportunities for network building and collaborative research. The group is committed to contributing findings from Spain and its regions to broader cross-national studies and activity to help enhance our understanding of the politics of European countries and beyond.




The PSA’s network of 60 Specialist Groups offers a research focus for all members and covers a vast range of specialities within the discipline. SGs provide an opportunity for groups of academics who share a common interest in a particular area of the discipline to organise meetings, coordinate communications, and as outlets for research – as well as giving PSA members opportunities for developing their academic impact and professional development.”
