The ECPR Standing Group on South Eastern Europe (SEE) aims to provide a more nuanced research and bring together scholars working on the region in the context of specific workshops and activities. We intend to promote the study of South East Europe through the lenses of mainstream political science, comparative politics and international relations, but also more region-specific issues including transitional justice, legacies of the past, nationalism and conflict as well as religion and politics. The operation of the group is based on inclusiveness and the active encouragement of diversity in terms of interdisciplinary research and methodology.
