This week, a new global ranking was released that measured the quality of 1,000 universities. Thirty-two Canadian universities made the list -- see which ones here!

This weekend marks the start to the 23rd World Congress of Political Science in Montréal (Québec). Political scientists are often seen not merely as analysts of political matters, but as something akin to engineers sculpting the organisation of power. Globalisation has profoundly altered the work of political scientists, intensifying communication and exchange on issues pertaining to the way in which communities, societies, nations and the world itself are governed. Under the “Challenges of contemporary governance” theme, the Congress will reflect upon the evolutions in governance in the face of numerous challenges. Stay tuned to our blog for reflections from the Congress!
