ECPR Summer School
Central European University, Budapest
27 July - 12 August 2017




Schedule of Activities

 

The Summer School takes place at the Department of Political Science, Central European University, Nádor utca 13, 1051 Budapest, Hungary.

Note from the Academic Convenors
The purpose of the Academic Plenary Programme is to provide methodological ‘experiences’ alongside the course(s) you are attending. The ECPR Methods School not only strives to offer excellent training through specialised courses; it also aims to facilitate methodological cross-fertilisation and debates and to contribute to career and skill building. Do take advantage of these ‘side dishes’ besides your course(s)!
Profs. Benoît Rihoux, Derek Beach and Levente Littvay, Academic Convenors.

Welcome Plenary Session
After a few short 'welcome' addresses, the welcome plenary session introduces each SSMT main course Instructor for a very short presentation about his/her course.  If this stirs your interest or raises questions, you may informally discuss these with the instructors during the welcome reception. Following this, the Academic Convenors present the course programme for the forthcoming ECPR Winter School in Methods and Techniques in Bamberg.
