The Standing Group on Parliaments of the European Consortia for Political Research (ECPR) will host its 4th conference in Basel June 29th – July 1st 2017. This is an inspiring, very focused and extremely useful conference for all those interested in studying legislatures. There is no regional or methodological restriction.

 4th Conference of the ECPR Standing Group on Parliaments

29 June – 1st July 2017 in Basel

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 and a conference dinner on the second evening of the conference.

We invite papers that deal with the empirical study of parliaments and legislatures. As it proved successful in Dublin, Vienna, and Munich, the exact thematic and regional range of papers is deliberately broad.

We are inviting proposals:

  • either for individual papers
  • or for entire panels consisting of three to four papers

Abstracts of proposed individual papers should be between 200 and 300 words. Proposals for panels should name a panel chair, discussant, the names of all proposed participants and abstracts for their individual papers.

Proposals should be sent to

Deadline for submissions: 6 January 2016

Proposals will be evaluated by 27 January 2017
