Could you shape the future of the ECPR? 

Could you shape the future of the ECPR? 

For the last 44 years the ECPR has been instrumental in shaping the development of the political science discipline. With a portfolio of major international events, highly ranked publications, prestigious prizes and an institutional membership that is growing year on year, the ECPR remains at the cutting edge of political science and is the association for all involved in its study.

By the end of March 2015, the term of office will expire for five Executive Committee members who were elected in 2009, and for two Executive Committee members who were co-opted to vacancies following the 2012 election.
