Political Studies Association

The Political Studies Association of the United Kingdom (PSA) is an association of political scientists that exists to develop and promote the study of politics in the United Kingdom. It is the leading association in its field in the UK, with an international membership including academics in political science and current affairs, theorists and practitioners, policy makers, researchers and students in higher education. The PSA was founded in 1950, following the establishment of the International Political Science Association in 1949, and was initially supported by a grant from UNESCO.

The PSA publishes four journals: the "British Journal of Politics and International Relations", "Political Studies", "Political Studies Review" and "Politics".

The PSA holds an annual awards ceremony, giving prizes to political scientists, journalists and politicians. In 2000, to celebrate its 50th anniversary, the PSA also awarded one-off Lifetime Achievement Awards to Brian Barry, Jean Blondel, David Butler, Bernard Crick, Stanley Hoffmann and Richard Rose.
