The Political Networks Section (sponsored by the ECPR Standing Group on Political Networks) aims to provide a multidisciplinary space of convergence for scholars that, while holding diverse research interests, share an analytic approach to network processes in political life, coupled with a strong attention to the integration of theory and empirical data. Political networks are conceived of in a broad sense - as defined around political actors (individuals, organizations and/or institutions), events that are relevant to the political biographies of individuals as well as around the use of digital communication technologies within political dynamics. Thus, ties can consist of exchanges of resources, information, and symbols, as well as of collaborations and communications that may occur both on- and offline. Leaning on this framework, the Political Network Section includes Panels, chaired by both junior and senior researchers from all over Europe.
