ECPR Standing Group/External
University of Lausanne, ECPG Conference
8 - 10 June 2017

5th European Conference on Politics and Gender (ECPG)
University of Lausanne, Switzerland, 8–10 June 2017

The ECPR Standing Group on Gender and Politics was founded in 1985, and now has more than 750 members worldwide. It is a broad network of scholars researching issues relating to gender and sexuality in politics and world politics. The Group encourages Workshops, Panels and research groups with an emphasis on gender, and seeks to increase the profile of women in the main fields of political science.

Over the past twenty years, research in this field has expanded significantly, and the number of gender and politics scholars participating in ECPR Joint Sessions and General Conferences has increased exponentially.

In 2007, the Standing Group on Gender and Politics arranged its first ever conference, the European Conference on Politics and Gender (ECPG). The conference now takes place biennially.
