From the Executive Board of the ABCP:

For the last 18 years, ABCP has promoted its meetings every two years, seeking to consolidate the field of Political Science in the scenario of national scientific knowledge. In its ninth edition (2014), the ABCP Meeting will endeavor to bring together academic visions and the democratic debate present in Brazilian society, in order to indicate reflections about the current political dynamics in Brazil, without losing sight of the compared perspective with other countries of the world, trade blocs and power centers such as MERCOSUR, UNASUL, IBAS Forum and BRICS group. Brazil’s international insertion and the North-South and South-South relations will also be part of the agenda of the IX Meeting.

 Therefore, we take this opportunity to invite colleagues (professors, masters and doctoral students) from abroad to participate in the IX Meeting of the Brazilian Political Science Association, from August 4th to August 7th, 2014 in Brasília. The main purpose of this Conference is to promote a space for academic debates of excellence, as well as the exchange between Political Science Associations from all over the world. The theme of the IX Meeting will be: 1964-2014: Authoritarianism, Democracy and Human Rights. The round tables will bring together renowned professors in the areas of Political Science, International Relations and other disciplines of the Social Sciences. The Thematic Areas are indicated in the program of the IX Meeting and in the summary description on ABCP’s homepage.
