The Association’s aim is to promote the study of all branches of political thought.
The study of political thought is interdisciplinary, encompassing work in political science, philosophy, history, law, sociology, economics, cultural and literary studies.
The Britain and Ireland Association for Political Thought (APT) aims to enable researchers and scholars from all these fields and others to work together and exchange ideas.
