The fourth annual conference of the European Political Science Association took place from June 19-21, 2014 in the beautiful and historic centre of Edinburgh, Scotland. This site for the conference is consistent with EPSA’s policy of holding the Annual General Meeting in unique, central, and interesting venues. We are expecting upwards of 700 participants from all over the world to attend the Edinburgh conference. You can expect that the EPSA 2014 meeting will maintain its commitment to featuring cutting-edge research paired with excellent networking opportunities in a great urban setting. This year we are also placing a renewed emphasis on making partners welcome, with a variety of social events before, during, and following the conference. These will include whisky tastings, a castle barbecue, a golf tournament, a massive Friday night party with music, and tours of the old city. This is not a conference you will want to miss!

The capital of Scotland, Edinburgh is one of the most beautiful and charming cities in Europe. With its magnificent architecture and stunning skyline, Edinburgh combines history and culture in a vibrant atmosphere, offering opportunities for conference participants to enjoy a wide range of fantastic attractions. Our venue lies in the centre of the city in the beautiful Georgian “New Town”, just a few minutes walk from the river and the looming Edinburgh Castle and the famous Royal Mile. A city of contrasts, Edinburgh juxtaposes traditional pubs, modern world cuisine, and hip coffee shops, age old skills and crafts on display in specialist shops with major fashion stores.

Edinburgh has something for everyone, and our conference will take place right in the centre of it. The conference venue is located right in the centre of Edinburgh, in two beautiful Georgian locations just a block apart and close to the major hotels for which we have reserved rooms for our delegates. The Royal Society of Edinburgh and the Royal College of Physicians of Edinburgh are both professional conference venues that will provide a perfectly organized and highly tailored conference experience with a classical flavour, in rooms that are showpieces of their own.

The conference 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.

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. One of the innovations on the proposal web site this year is that participants can propose to attend as a panel chair and/or discussant.

The call for papers closed on December 20, 2013.

Note: Discounted rates apply to student members for the annual conference. (EPSA may be joined separately here.)
