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 series seeks to open doors to some of the most pressing issues and challenges in the discipline.
Our Groups and Networks 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.

The Standing Group on Organised Crime (SGOC) promotes research on organised crime across disciplinary, regional and professional boundaries. To this end, it offers a number of platforms such as its own website (http://sgocnet.org/), a blog, and diverse social media. Moroever, the SGOC organises Summer-Winter Schools, produces a blog with RUSI's SHOC, The Informer and has recently launched The European Review of Organised Crime, its own peer-reviewed open access journal. During Sections at ECPR General Conferences, it brings together junior and senior experts. It is also frequently involved in the publication of special journal issues and edited books.
It is hoped that the Standing Group will facilitate the development of theoretical approaches as well as in-depth studies of empirical examples, to network members, to create fruitful exchanges between disciplines with a regular flow of information on projects, etc. This Standing Group would also allow researchers to meet on a regular basis and promote an active publication agenda.
The specific aims of this Standing Group are:
European Review of Organised Crime (Peer review open access on-line journal)
4th ECPR SGOC General Conference 2022
Luca Ranieri, Sant'Anna School of Advanced Studies, Pisa, Italy)
SG Winter School, 2023
