ECPR General Conference
Charles University in Prague
7 – 10 September 2016
The ECPR’s General Conference is the largest political science event in Europe, bringing some 2,000 political scientists together every autumn. The 2016 Conference will be held at Charles University, Prague, in the Czech Republic; the oldest institution of higher learning in Central Europe. One of the best preserved cultural centres of Europe, Prague is often referred to as ‘Golden Prague’, ‘The City of a Hundred Spires’ and ‘The Paris of the East’, and we look forward to holding the 10th anniversary of the General Conference in this beautiful city.
The academic programme takes the traditional format of Sections, organised around a common theme or major research question. Each Section then contain between three and eight Panels, each addressing a specific question. With a truly international attendance expected, which crosses all sub-disciplines of political science and indeed all career stages, presenting a Paper provides the opportunity to benefit from invaluable discussion and debate.
Citizenship Standing Group will endorsed one section in this conference :
- “Citizenship Debates: Normative, Empirical and Policy Reflections on Contemporary Developments“, chair by Trond Solhaug (Norwegian University of Science & Technology, Trondheim) and co-chair by Katja Mäkinen (University of Jyväskylä);
And some members of the Standing Group organised another section :
- “Citizenship Education: New Challenges and Recent Developments“, chair by Bernard Fournier (Vrije Universiteit Brussel) and Daniel Oross (Centre for Social Sciences, Hungarian Academy of Sciences).
