‘(Geo)Political Transformations in the Mediterranean’ at the ECPR General Conference 2020 in Innsbruck, Austria

Dr Sarah Wolff (Queen Mary University of London) and Professor Frédéric Volpi (The University of Edinburgh) are convening a section at the ECPR General Conference 2020 (University of Innsbruck, 26-28 August 2020).

The section is titled ‘(Geo)Political Transformations in the Mediterranean’ and invites scholars to submit panel proposals considering a wide range of relevant questions such as: What is specific to the social movements that are emerging/ continuing in the Mediterranean? How are states responding to the demands of such movements – e.g. in Algeria and Lebanon? Can we identify new forms of ‘Mediterranean Islamism’? How can we explain the persistence of authoritarianism in the Southern Mediterranean after the Arab uprisings? How can we explain the role of the youth, migrants and the socially marginalized in protest movements and migratory fluxes? To what extent is it possible to reconceptualize the centers-peripheries relations in the Mediterranean? What are the new challenges for gender in the Mediterranean?

The deadline for panel proposals is 19 February 2020. For more information, click here.
