The first annual conference of the European Political Science Association took place from June 16-18 at the Guinness Storehouse Conference Centre, in the heart of the Guinness brewery in Dublin, Ireland. Some 390 participants from all over the world will enjoyed a conference in which cutting-edge research was paired with excellent networking opportunities.


Conference presentations were organized by topic into ten broadly defined sections, designed to attract a wide variety of specific proposals for papers within each section. EPSA also invites proposals to attend as a panel chair or discussant.

Dublin is a great place to visit. The city is brimming with life, music, entertainment, and a great restaurant or a pub is never far. The conference takes place during the week in which the days are longest and the nights shortest. The conference therefore aimed not just to bring together the foamy froth of latest political science research, but also to do so in during a part of the calendar that has since Neolithic times has been recognized as ideal for large gatherings.

The call for papers is now closed (the deadline was December 10, 2010).

EPSA employs a policy of non-discrimination and therefore does not have panels for graduate students only. Consequently, proposal registration does not require disclosure of the year in which the PhD was completed. In the spirit of this equal participation policy, however, all attendees face the same registration fees, although registration will be discounted for EPSA members. (EPSA may be joined separately here.) Conference registration fees were €130 for members and €200 for non-members.
