Dr Blerjana Bino participates in COST Action CA15207

Title: “Professionalization and Social Impact of European Political Science”
Action Chair: Prof. Giliberto Capano, University of Bologna

ProSEPS - The main aim and objective of PROSEPS is to develop an innovative assessment of the state and the perspectives of Political Science in Europe. At first, the Action will focus on developing a common framework for the understanding of the professionalization of Political Science, discussing and promoting a set of measurements regarding the academic centrality and the effectiveness of the work of political scientists. Moreover, a comparative framework for assessing the social impact of “knowledge” of Political Science will be assessed and tested, in order to understand whether, and in what way, Political Science is employed at national level, and thus to understand the opportunities that political scientists currently seem to have to improve the impact of their work, and to contribute to the real process of policy making.


The Action is intended to serve as a vehicle for the development of an in-depth, innovative assessment of the state of European Political Science, from both a professional and an applied perspective. Accordingly, the following goals ought to be pursued:
a) a reflection on the recent evolution (at least the past 20 years) of the academic subject of Political Science;
b) a broad report on two specific aspects of the professionalization of the subject: the notion of mobility within and across national borders and that of internationalization.
c) a broad analysis of the social impact of Political Science within policy-making processes at both national and supranational levels.
