Program Description

Erected by the National Episcopal Conference of Congo in July 2009, the Faculty of Political Science Intends to promote in-depth teaching and rigorous research in political science. It also intends to contribute to the advent and development of policies based on peoples' experiences.

The Faculty of Political Sciences is thus called upon to train experts in political science in order to encourage and support the desires of peoples towards the establishment of good political governance.
