Early Career Network

I want to join the Network

IPPA is happy to announce the establishment of the IPPA Early Career Network, a global platform for PhD students and early career scholars working in the broad field of public policy.


The mission of the IPPA ECN builds on three pillars:

  • Bringing the voice of early career researchers inside the IPPA College and contribute to the strategic decisions of the association.
  • Providing a space for sharing research outputs, events, job opportunities, and substantive and methodological challenges.
  • Creating the opportunity for professional networkingwhere early career researchers can meet with senior mentors, journal editors, and established scholars in public policy.


Register online and join the first global community of public policy early career scholars! (More info coming soon)


The 4th International Conference on public policy will be held on June 26 -28 2019, at Concordia University in Montreal, Canada. On June 25, we will take this opportunity to officially launch the IPPA Early Career Network!
