Since its inception the Institute of Public Administration and Politics has placed a significant emphasis on developing and strengthening collaborative ties between the institute and the MPA program at the Faculty of Political Science on the one hand and institutions, programs and colleagues abroad. The institute has collaborated with EPAN: European Public Administration Network; NOPSA: Nordic Political Science Association; ECPR: European Consortium for Political Research; the International Political Science Association; as well as with European universities offering MPA programs, and in several network projects supported by Nordic and European grants programs. The institute has also hosted multi-national conferences, symposia, and workshops in Iceland, and facilitated visits by prominent researchers in the fields of e.g. political science, international affairs, and public administration who have lectured and otherwise participated in events hosted by the institute and the MPA program.
