All graduate students are invited to submit papers and proposals for the fourth annual Conference on Democracy and Governance. We welcome papers on any topic related to democracy and governance, including and not limited to subfields and topics such as:
- Human Rights
- Comparative and Global policy, politics and institutions
International governance and conflicts
- State-centered analyses
- International conflict and resolution
- Security studies
Theories of democracy
Race, Gender and Ethnicity
- Issues of race, gender and ethnicity within governance and democracy
- Political Psychology
All submissions will be eligible for inclusion in the workshops. These workshops are designed to help graduate students further develop their research. They are an excellent opportunity to dialogue and engage with highly respected scholars as well as gather feedback and critiques in a supportive and positive environment.
The Conference will also host panels of selected submissions of complete papers. These selected panels are for fully developed questions and follow a more traditional conference panel structure.
If you are interested in participating in this event, please submit a proposal (100-250 words) along with your contact information and your school by December 20, 2011. Please indicate what subfield/subject area of your project and if you would like your paper considered for a workshop, panel, or both.
