Summer School 2019
We are happy to maintain the collaboration between the Standing Group on Local Government and Politics (ECPR) and the European Urban Research Association (EURA) to endorse this year’s Summer School, organized by the ZHAW School of Management and Law (SML) of the University of Zürich-Winterthur.
The 2019 edition – ‘Is Local Always Better? In Search of Adequate Territorial Structures for Governance, Decision-Making, and Service Delivery’ – will be held in Winterthur, Switzerland (from 6th to 12th July 2019).
It is one of the long-lasting series of summer courses for PhD-students interested in local government and politics issues. It gives an opportunity to develop a further understanding of comparative local government studies and to discuss PhD-related research with an experienced international faculty of different disciplines. The Summer School is also an excellent opportunity to build, deepen or widen networks with scholars working on similar topics in the field.
