Reimagining an Uncertain Political Future


We are excited to announce that the 2022 Australian Political Studies Conference will be hosted at the Australian National University between 26-28 September 2022 (with Postgraduate Workshop on Sunday 25 September 2022). The Conference is jointly hosted by the School of Politics & International Relations, the Crawford School of Public Policy, and the Coral Bell School of Asia Pacific Affairs. The conference will be an in-person event. The theme for APSA 2022 ‘Reimagining our Political Futures’ recognises the upheavals of contemporary politics including but not limited to navigating a post-COVID world. We invite paper proposals with an explicit focus on how actors navigate uncertainty in contemporary politics and the possible trajectories of our shared political future.
