We are the leading scholarly society concerned with the research and teaching of political science in Europe, headquartered in the UK with a global membership.
Our groups and networks are pushing the boundaries of specialist sub-fields of political science, helping to nurture diversity and inclusivity across the discipline.
This unique event has helped tens of thousands of scholars over nearly five decades hone research, grow networks and secure publishing contracts.
An engaging platform for discussion, debate and thinking; Europe's largest annual gathering of political scientists from across the globe.
A comprehensive programme of cutting-edge qualitative and quantitative methodological training delivered by experts across two annual events.
Inspired by Harbour House, our HQ which provides a literal and metaphorical ‘home’ for the ECPR family, this lecture series seeks to open doors to some of the most pressing issues and challenges in the discipline.
Our Standing Groups organise a range of annual events, including summer schools, conferences and workshops, open to all.
Our highly regarded peer-reviewed journals, produced in partnership with the world's leading academic publishers, share the best scholarly thinking.
Through our imprint ECPR Press and via the OUP Comparative Politics book series, we publish research by, and for the political science community.
Sharp analyses of topical news from a political science perspective, research summaries and the latest expert thinking.
Digital content from across our activities and community: lectures, seminars and discussions available to stream via our podcast
or watch on demand.
Our members are universities across the globe and the scholars who work and study within them; membership benefits both the individual and the institution.
We have a range of funding schemes to help progress individual careers and to support the wider development of the discipline.
From distinguished scholars to exceptional PhD students, our prizes recognise service and achievement across the profession.

The House Lectures
Just like Harbour House, our HQ in the UK, ECPR is a ‘house of many rooms’. Be it nationality, school of thought, methodological approach or stage of career, ECPR makes space for everyone, bringing people together under one roof to nurture and grow an inclusive and diverse international community.
As we step into our second half-century, we take time to reflect on our mission and consider what else can be done to help break down barriers, to provide platforms and spaces for discourse and to reach out beyond academe and shine a light on the work of our discipline.
Harbour House provides both a literal and metaphorical ‘home’ for the whole ECPR family, so it is in this spirit that we created The House Lectures, launched in December 2020 to round off our 50th Anniversary celebrations.
Our first four lectures, held virtually, considered threats to democracy:
Following these lectures, this exciting venture will present a line-up of talks that seek to open doors to some of the most pressing issues and challenges today from a broad range of perspectives.
