The ECPR operates two membership types:

  • Full Membership is open to all institutions based in Europe.
  • Associate Membership is open to all other non-European countries, but Associate Members with six consecutive years’ membership can apply to become Full Members and thus enjoy the benefits of a full member.

Individuals from Associate Member institutions are not eligible for ECPR grants or scholarships, they cannot stand for, or vote, in an Executive Committee election, will not become part of the Council, and they can only co-direct a Workshop at the ECPR’s Joint Sessions of Workshops.


The following table gives the institutional membership rates for the current year (1 October 2018 through to 30 September 2019).

Full Member - United Kingdom £2,080.00
Full Member - Western Europe €2,370.00
Full Member - Central and Eastern Europe €1,185.00
Associate Member - OECD Member €1,185.00
Associate Member - Non-OECD Member €710.00
