The European Consortium for Political Research (ECPR) has officially opened its Call for Panels and Papers for the upcoming 2014 ECPR General Conference. The event will be hosted by the University of Glasgow from 3 to 6 September 2014. As Europe’s biggest political science conference, the ECPR’s General Conference gathers scholars from across the world to discuss key areas of this discipline. The conference follows a traditional format with the Academic Programme consisting 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, international relations and European studies.
