45-minute virtual lecture followed by extended Q&A

Read ABSTRACT

In our second House Lecture held virtually, the 2020 recipient of our Rising Star Award, Veronica Anghel, will consider threats to democracy in Central and Eastern Europe.

The lecture is completely FREE to attend, but registration is required. 

Following this instalment, the House Lectures will present a line-up of talks that seek to open doors to some of the most pressing issues and challenges in political science today, from a broad range of perspectives.

In line with our overarching mission, the House Lectures aim to help break down barriers in European political science, to provide a platform for discourse and to reach out beyond academe and shine a light on the work of our discipline.

The House Lectures in brief

  • Inspired by Harbour House, our HQ in the UK, which provides both a literal and metaphorical ‘home’ for the ECPR community
  • Delivering insightful lectures on the hottest topics in political science and beyond
  • Each followed by an extended Q&A sessions
  • Open to all, ECPR members and non-members
