42nd ECPR Joint Sessions of Workshops 2014

  • Conference Call
  • The 42nd ECPR Joint Ses­sions of Work­shops organ­ised by the Euro­pean Con­sor­tium for Polit­i­cal Research (ECPR) will be held April 10 – 15, 2014 in Sala­manca, Spain.

    The Joint Ses­sions of Work­shops have been hosted annu­ally in March or April in an array of dif­fer­ent Euro­pean cities since 1973. They have been referred to as the ‘jewel in the crown’ of the ECPR and are recog­nised as one of the major high­lights of the world’s polit­i­cal sci­ence calendar.

    The work­shops are designed to be a forum for sub­stan­tive dis­cus­sion on research in progress and col­lab­o­ra­tion among schol­ars. They are gath­er­ings of approx­i­mately 15 to 20 par­tic­i­pants from sev­eral dif­fer­ent insti­tu­tions, last­ing for about 5 days. The top­ics of dis­cus­sion are pre­cisely defined, and only those schol­ars cur­rently work­ing in the workshop’s field are invited to participate.

    The main objec­tive of the work­shops is to facil­i­tate and encour­age par­tic­i­pa­tion, equal­ity and col­lab­o­ra­tion between younger and newer mem­bers of the pro­fes­sion, advanced stu­dents, and well-​established pro­fes­sors. In order to achieve this, the size of each work­shop is strictly lim­ited. Each par­tic­i­pant is expected to be car­ry­ing out research in the field of the work­shop, so that he or she is both able to present a paper or research doc­u­ment for dis­cus­sion, and par­tic­i­pate in the dis­cus­sion of the other papers presented.

    Par­tic­i­pants may attend only one work­shop and should stay for the dura­tion of the Joint Ses­sions. It is hoped that some of these work­shops will lead to pub­li­ca­tions and the cre­ation of per­ma­nent stand­ing groups, in addi­tion to con­tin­u­ing col­lab­o­ra­tion between members.
