This is just a gentle reminder that the deadline to send your paper proposal for the ECPR Joint Sessions of Workshops will close on 6 December.
The Standing Group Participation and Mobilisation endorsed the workshop “The Citizens’ Voice? When and How Advocacy Groups Represent and Affect Public Preferences”. Please see below additional details about this workshop.
The call for paper proposals for the upcoming ECPR joint sessions in Nicosia (10/05-14/05) is now open. You are cordially invited to submit a paper to our workshop titled “The Citizens’ Voice? When and How Advocacy Groups Represent and Affect Public Preferences”.
The workshop seeks to bridge and expand the research on advocacy groups and policy congruence. We welcome contributions exploring new frontiers in this research area, including studies of different types of advocacy groups, different polities around the world, and different stages in the policymaking cycle. We also welcome studies that examine alternative routes to policy representation (such as parties and media).
