The ECPR’s General Conference is its largest event, often bringing together some 2,500 political scientists from throughout the world. The 2015 Conference is taking place at Université de Montréal – the ECPR’s first ever event to be held outside of Europe.

The list of Sections has been finalised; and the call is open for Full Panels and individual Papers. Since this is a combined stage, individuals are able to propose to a Section, either a Panel including 4 – 5 Papers or individual Papers. Further information explaining the stages in detail can be found in the Guidelines.

The deadline for Panel and Paper submissions is 16 February 2015. If you have any further questions, please email the General Conference Team (

Wednesday 4 February 2015 – Nottingham Trent University, UK
Paper deadline: 1 December 2014

The Division of Politics and International Relations at Nottingham Trent University is pleased to invite participants to this conference which will run three Panels:

  •   Beyond the mainstream: The emergence of ‘new’ parties across Europe
  •   Panel 2: Beyond the mainstream: The emergence of ‘new’ parties across the UK
  •   Panel 3: Mobilising political action: The challenges of class, ethnicity, gender and age -based political participation inequalities.

The conference will culminate in a roundtable session, comprising national speakers as well as representatives from political parties, and will address a question of crucial significance for the future health of UK democracy, “Should 16 and 17 year olds be given the vote?”

In particular, we would very much welcome abstract submissions from PhD students and early-career researchers, as well as from more experienced academic researchers and citizenship and election professionals.
