Ever since 1993, the Annual International Political Studies Meetings (Estoril Political Forum) have brought together academics, students, politicians, business leaders, opinion makers and journalists in an open debate on the issues surrounding politics and international relations.
This international forum is recognised as a program of excellence endowing students and other participants the opportunity to learn and engage with some of the most renowned specialists in the field while simultaneously building up a broad reaching network of international contacts.
The Estoril Political Forum is considered unique within the Portuguese scenario and has already established its position as a landmark in international terms, especially in Anglo-American circles.
This international debating forum is designed for all IEP undergraduate, master and doctoral degree students (under the credit regime) and all other entities and individuals interested in the themes key to Political Science and International Relations.
Throughout the intervening years, the IEP summer courses have attracted over a 6800 participants and speakers.
"(...) we have always made clear our attachment to the classical understanding of the Idea of a University as a place of learning—as Michael Oakeshott, another of our great mentors, used to say. This means the understanding of a University as a place for the pursuit of Truth, the Good and the Beautiful—and not as a place of propaganda. This means the stern defence of Free Speech and the stern refusal of tribalism and of collectivism. This also means the engagement in an on-going pluralistic, civilized conversation, and the refusal of ideological warfare among “unfortunate dichotomies,” as Ralf Dahrendorf, another of our great mentors, used to say."
Prof. João Carlos Espada,
