About

The Committee on Concepts and Methods (C&M) is a Research Committee of the International Political Science Association (IPSA). Founded by Giovanni Sartori and friends, C&M was the first research committee recognized by IPSA in 1970. C&M remains one of IPSA's most active Research Committees. Its institutional home, and sponsor, traditionally rotates with its Chair.   C&M is currently housed at the University of Texas at Austin and before that at CIDE in Mexico City and the University of Massachusetts Amherst. C&M promotes conceptual and methodological discussion in political science. It provides a forum of debate for adherents of methodological schools who otherwise tend to conduct their deliberations at separate tables.
