About the ECSA-C YRN:
In 2004, the Young Researchers Network became an official entity within the European Community Studies Association-Canada (ECSA-C YRN). Since then, the YRN held conferences and co-organized panels at the ECSA-C Biennial Meetings, facilitating the integration of students’ paper presentations into the general conference panels. For the first time, the ECSA-C YNR is organising a 3-days workshop to expand its activities in order to strengthen its capacity as a dynamic, innovative organization within the area of European studies in Canada.
