Committee of Recommendation

We are very happy to introduce our Committee of Recommendation. Here’s what they have to say about the IAPSS Autumn Convention 2014. Of course, the Organizing Committee is very honoured by and grateful for the support from the Committee of Recommendation.


Clemens Cornielje

King´s Commissioner for the province of Gelderland:

“As a former member of the Dutch Parliament and as King’s Commissioner I am convinced of the importance of active membership of the civil society. Our country has a long tradition of political philosophers and philosophic politicians: always searching for the connection between idea’s and inhabitants, between different groups of the same society. For me it is completely logic that Nijmegen will be the host for the IAPSS Congress: the oldest – and at the same time a very vivid- city of our country. With a university that can be proud of it’s historical and present academic achievements.”


Bas Kortmann

Rector Magnificus of the Radboud University:

“How universal are human rights in the 21 century? It is tremendously inspiring to discuss such a theme at an international gathering, each of us from our own perspective and background. The best general university in the Netherlands is the ideal location to do just that.”


Gerard Meijer

President of the Executive Board of the Radboud University:

“We look forward to welcoming our international guests at our green campus in the oldest city in the Netherlands. I have every confidenice that ismus – the study association of the best political science programme in the Netherlands – will ensure the succes of this 18th edition.”
