The second annual conference of the European Political Science Association will take place from June 21-23 at the New Malthouse and the Environmental Forum in the Church of Resurrection Conference Centre, Berlin. Building on a highly successful 1st general conference held in Dublin (at the Guinness Storehouse Conference Centre), we expect about 600-700 participants from all over the world to attend the Berlin conference, in which cutting-edge research is paired with excellent networking opportunities in a great environment.

Conference presentations are 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.

Berlin is a city full with history but also brimming with life, culture, entertainment, great restaurants and bars. The EPSA conference takes place during the week in which the days are longest and the nights shortest, in a pleasant summer month. Berlin is also an extremely convenient location from the standpoint of rail, air, and road travel, and boasts a superb public transport system within the city. The conference therefore aims not just to bring together the best of the latest political science research, but also to do so in a convenient fashion for our delegates, and to make sure they also have a great time during the conference.

The call for papers is now closed.

Note: 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 will be approximately the same as in 2011, which was €130 for members and €200 for non-members.
