Call for sections - European Consortium for Political Research (ECPR) General Conference

For the first time ever, the European Consortium for Political Research (ECPR) will hold its annual General Conference outside of Europe, at the Université de Montréal. Please find below the call for Sections.

Deadline to apply: 17 novembre 2014.

As Europe's biggest gathering of political scientists, the ECPR General Conference is the platform for lively discussion, exchange of ideas and the best thinging in the discipline. The conference covers the full range of political science, and attracts scholars from throughout the world and at all stages of their career.

In 2015, the ECPR will be bringing this must-attend event to Canada and the University of Montreal - set in an exceptional natural setting on the Northern slope of Mount Royal, the Conference will be held between 26–29 August 2015.

The Academic Programme for the General Conference will consist of lectures, Roundtables and themed Sections and Panels on topical subjects. Each Panel will include 4–5 Papers to be presented and discussed. The Programme will be very broad with Sections covering all the main areas of political science, political theory and international relations. You can present and discuss your work or simply observe and become involved in other elements of the programme.
