Challenges and Opportunities for a Post-Pandemic Political Science

Plenary Sessions
Euiyoung Kim

In this address, I outline what I see as the challenges, trends and opportunities facing political science in the post pandemic world. In particular, I focus on the importance of political science education in addressing the global challenges to democracy we now face, and the need to rethink political science education at all levels, primary, secondary, undergraduate and graduate education to better promote an engaged citizenship. It ends with a call for the promotion of more effective civic education  and the promotion of civic engagement among our students. Finally, I describe the substantial recent efforts in the American Political Science Association to help promote these goals.
