Mission Statement

The Presidents and Executive Politics (PEP) Organized Section of APSA is the premier association of scholars devoted to the study of the American presidency and executive politics more broadly.  Our broad mandate encompasses research on national, subnational, and cross-national executive politics.  The section welcomes diverse theoretical perspectives, analytical techniques, and data sources as they contribute to the advancement of scholarship and instruction.  We also invite contributions and perspectives from other disciplines.  PEP values the establishment of enduring non-partisan links between scholarship, the real world of presidential and executive politics, and public policy.

On behalf of the membership, we welcome you!
