Joint Sessions, held virtually

14 – 17 April 2020

  #ecprjs20

This year's Joint Sessions of Workshops, initially scheduled to happen at Sciences Po in Toulouse, took place remotely and was a resounding success, bringing together seven of the planned Workshops and an impressive 87 participants! What's more, thanks to the magic of the internet, Virginie Guiraudon delivered our annual Stein Rokkan memorial lecture to participants.

While no substitute for the intensive debate that can arise when scholars meet face to face for a full week of discussion, this exceptional remote conference – for which ECPR charged no registration fee – represented the most rewarding experience we could offer to our member affiliates during what is a testing time for us all. 

We are happy to confirm that having missed out this time around, Sciences Po Toulouse will play host to our 2023 Joint Sessions. In the meantime, our heartfelt thanks to everyone who tuned in this year.

The Joint Sessions are the defining event of our organisation and remain one of the major highlights of the world's political science calendar. Each year, the event attracts more than 400 scholars from across the globe – at all stages of their career. Consisting of around 30 Workshops, each with no more than 15 carefully selected participants, topics are precisely defined and discussed intensively for four full days. The result is a thorough and fruitful critique of research, which often results in the publication of acclaimed multi-authored books, and in the formation of new research groups.
