Since 1986, the Brazilian Political Science Association – ABCP –  has brought together academics, researchers, professionals and students of Political Science and related fields to produce and disseminate knowledge, publications and projects. ABCP works in partnership with research institutes, foundations and development agencies, universities and other public and private organizations, interested in academic or professional exchange.

One of our most important current goals is to establish and renew institutional relations with other political science associations in Latin America and other developing countries.
