The ECPR General Conference facilitates and nurtures political science across Europe, delivering an interactive and engaging platform for discussion, debate and innovative thinking.

Here’s a taster of what you can expect from the virtual General Conference experience. More details to be announced as we explore all our technical options, and collect valuable feedback from our Member affiliates on generalconference@ecpr.eu.
