About our Institute

The primary objective of the Institute for Political Science of MTA Centre for Social Sciences is to conduct basic research in political science. Researchers at the Institute conduct both theoretical and empirical research, and the results are disseminated to both the academic and general public at scientific and professional forums.

Institute for Political Science 2.0

On the occasion of the Researchers’ Night 2017, we launched the PTIblog which is designed to be the main online platform for communicating our activities towards the general public. The entries (available in Hungarian) have been being published twice a month. All represent the very best essence of our research products. The aim is to provide short, jargon-free but strictly evidence-based reflections to politics. The covered topics (so far) are the hybrid regimes, contentious politics, right wing radicalism, leadership, populism, political thoughts, party politics, political behaviour and many more.
