Active commitment on the board of directors

Prof. Beate Neuss was elected Vice Chair of the German Association of Political Science

Prof. Beate Neuss, Head of the Professorship of International Relations at Chemnitz University of Technology, was elected Vice Chair of the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Politikwissenschaft (German Society for Political Science) (DGfP) in July. The election was held at the general meeting in the framework of the annual meeting of the DGfP in the Academy for Political Education Tutzing. This year’s meeting theme was “State of the nation. Conceptual debates, social realities, international perspectives”.

The DGfP e.V. is a professional association for political science. The DGfP considers itself according to its statutes as a “scientific society, serving to promote political science in research and academic teaching”.  The society supports scientific exchange, discusses questions of the discipline as such and its curriculum at universities, and maintains relations to the international political science community. The practical relevance of the discipline as well as its dialogue with neighboring academic disciplines is part of their self-image. Approximately 200 scientists are members of the DGfP including political scientists, law experts, social scientists, historians, and representatives of other social sciences and humanities. The core of activities of the DGfP are its annual meetings, which primarily deal with problems affecting the political sciences as well as the political practice.
