for the upcoming ECPR General Conference in Prague, Sept. 4-8, together with Lorenzo Zamponi we are co-chairing a section on “Participation and Mobilization between Crises, Polarization, and new Challenges to Democracy“.
We invite Papers which speak to the established core interests in the study of political participation and social movements, as well as to more recent or emerging areas of academic inquiry. In line with the scope of the Standing Group on Participation and Mobilisation, this Section particularly aims at bringing the literature on political participation and social movements closer together. Panels seek to explore several topics for which citizen engagement has long been highly relevant, or where its role has recently changed dramatically. We expect that such a topical focus will facilitate empirically coherent and theoretically innovative discussions.
We are looking forward to your contributions (deadline for paper and panel submissions is February 28th). If there are any questions in the meantime, please do not hesitate to get back to us.
All the best,
Felix and Lorenzo
