During the academic year, the Centre for the Study of Political Change organizes a series of research seminars. Tuesday Seminars’ scope is not limited to a specific field or area: it is open to all social scientists and scholars who work on political science related issues from a variety of disciplines.

The Seminar provides an opportunity for both academic staff and graduate students of the CIRCaP to familiarize with the scholarly research currently undertaken in Italy and abroad. It specifically aims to enable MA and PhD students to experience at first-hand the work of researchers and the different stages of research crafting.

The current calendar of the “Jean Blondel Tuesday Seminars in Political Science” is out now! Click here.
