Academic Club of Political Scientists
The Academic Club of Political Scientists was established in 1995 by an initiative of Vytautas Magnus University students (at the time, it was called the Club of Young Political Scientists). This club attracts not just the students and scholars of political science: students, lecturers and alumni of economics, informatics, arts, social sciences and the humanities gather here to discuss matters of political life and social issues. They also hold seminars that tackle questions relevant to society. With its activities, the club seeks to encourage the building of a civil society in Lithuania, as well as raise the political culture of academic outh. Seminars and lectures are an integral part of the club’s activities.
The Goals and Strategy
The Academic Club of Political Scientists promotes the creation of civil society in Lithuania, raises the political culture of academic youth, propagates studies of political sciences, provides the members of the club with an opportunity to meet famous politicians, political scientists and public figures and get to know them firsthand.

Politically-themed talks with lectures or among the members themselves take place. Together with other organisations, the club prepares the high school students’ public spirit olympics.
