About us

The Swiss Political Theory Network (SPTN) promotes the research in political theory / philosophy, and the exchange between scholars engaged in that field across the Swiss academic community. It aims at fostering the cooperation on on-going research projects as well as facilitating the development of new ideas.

The SPTN is committed to sustaining the scholarly development of senior and early-stage researchers by offering a forum for the exchange of their research outcomes and information about academic events.

Launched in 2021 under the patronage of the Working Group in Political Theory of the Swiss Political Science Association, the SPTN includes members from across Swiss universities.

Founding members: Prof Emanuela Ceva (University of Geneva, Coordinator), Dr Alice el-Wakil (University of Zurich), Dr Michele Bocchiola (University of Geneva).
