Welcome to the website of the Italian Politics Specialist Group of the UK Political Studies Association 

The PSA Italian Politics Specialist Group (IPSG) was founded in 2001 to promote the study of Italian politics in the United Kingdom.
The IPSG is an international network of leading experts on Italian politics and comparative politics. We support research on Italian political and social affairs and strive to promote comparative analysis. We organise conferences and scholarly events, and provide a link between academics, practitioners and the media.

All who are interested in the government, politics, social affairs, foreign relations, the recent political history of Italy as well as comparative political analysis are invited to join the Group (to do so, please visit the PSA website at this link, log in or create an account and then click on the 'request group membership' tab on the left-side menu). If you have any query about membership, please contact Dario Quattromani. 

It is hoped that the site will act as a research and teaching resource. In time, we will add information that can be interrogated on-line and a discussion forum for the exchange of ideas and opinions. If you would like to promote your publications, know of sites that have not been listed here, or information you would like to make available, please email Paolo Chiocchetti.
