Welcome to the website of the Belgian Vereniging voor Politieke Wetenschappen (Political Science Association). The VPW is the Dutch-speaking political science association of Belgium. It welcomes all people interested in political science. Belgium also has a Francophone Political Science Association (ABSP) with whom we actively collaborate.

The VPW publishes the journal Politics of the Low Countries. That is the political science review of the Low Countries. Together with the Dutch Political Science Association (NKWP) the VPW organizes yearly the Politicologenetmaal (24 hours of political science). Members of the VPW can subscribe to Politics of the Low Countries (former Res Publica) at a reduced price and can also subscribe at a lower price to Acta Politica, the journal of the NKWP. The 19th Annual Meeting will take place on June 11-12, 2020, in Nijmegen.
