The Standing Group Politics and History is a stable research group within the Italian Society of Political Science (SISP), connecting scholars with similar thematic interests. The members of this Standing Group share the idea that one cannot understand the main contemporary political processes without referring to the “long duration” of historical processes. Historical political science is based on the recognition of the importance of long-term changes as a key to interpreting the contemporary world.
The Standing Group pays particular attention to the different trajectories of political and economic development at the national and local levels, but also welcomes the comparative perspective needed to place national contexts in a spatial and temporal dimension of change, in which international phenomena interact with national and local developments.
