ECPR General Conference
Universität Hamburg, Hamburg
22 - 25 August 2018




2018 General Conference, Hamburg

The 2018 General Conference will be held at Universität Hamburg in northern Germany. Hamburg, or to give it its official name, Freie und Hanseastadt Hamburg, (Free and Hanseatic City of Hamburg), is Germany's second largest city. The Speicherstadt (city of warehouses) has recently been awarded UNESCO World Heritage status and, with more bridges than Venice and Amsterdam combined, it could just be the perfect place to build and strengthen links between all areas of the political science discipline.

ECPR’s General Conference remains Europe's largest annual gathering of political scientists, often attracting more than 2,000 scholars from throughout the world and at all stages of their career. With nearly 500 Panels taking place across 68 Sections, the academic programme covers the breadth of political science, creating the platform for lively discussion, exchange of ideas and the best thinking in the discipline.

The academic content is complemented by a stimulating plenary programme, including Roundtables addressing topical or contentious themes and a Plenary Lecture delivered by a high profile member of the profession. The timetable is completed by a carefully planned social programme, offering many opportunities to meet with old friends and new colleagues.
