On the heels of the successful conference in Munich, the ECPR Standing Group on Parliaments (SGoP) invites you to submit your proposals for the conference next year. The fourth conference of the SGoP is being hosted by Stefanie Bailer and Tamaki Ohmura at the University of Basel.

The conference will bring together senior and junior scholars of the field. Away from the hectic bustle of large-scale conferences it will offer unique opportunities for detailed discussions and networking. The academic programme will be completed by a social programme including a welcome reception allowing us ample time to catch up with old friends and to meet new members as well as a reception at the Basel Town Hall and a conference dinner on the second evening of the conference.
