The Association for Political Theory was founded in 2000 to promote the study of political theory and political philosophy in North America. Specifically, the APT seeks to:
- advance scholarly interaction, collaboration, and debate among political theorists;
- support teaching, research, and publishing in political theory, political philosophy, and related forms of interdisciplinary studies;
- organize annual conferences devoted to political thought; and
promote political theory in the academy.
