The Council of Europe will present its publications at the 23rd World Congress of Political Science, which theme this year is “Challenges of Contemporary Governance”. This congress, organised every second year by the International Political Science Association (IPSA/AISP), will take place in Montreal, Quebec (Canada) from 19 to 24 July 2014 and will gather more than 3,000 political scientists from over 80 countries. The principal themes covered by this congress will be: international political economy; international relations; public policy analysis and administrative science; comparative politics and institutions; political theory, gender and politics; urban and regional politics and policies; political attitudes and behaviour.

IPSA was founded in Paris in 1949 under the aegis of the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation (UNESCO). The special mandate of IPSA, expressed in its Constitution, is to support the development of political science in all parts of the world, building academic networks linking East and West, North and South. Its aim is to create an inclusive and global political science community in which all can participate. It seeks to promote collaboration between scholars in emerging and established democracies and to support the academic freedoms needed for the social sciences to flourish.
