Byelaws in addition to the Standing Group Framework
The Standing Group is governed by a Steering Committee (hereafter SC) consisting of five people. At least three of them must be affiliated to ECPR member institutions.
SC members are elected by and from Standing Group’s members and serve a three-year mandate. During the mandate, SC members are expected to be actively involved in all Standing Group activities (including participation in the Annual ECPR Conference) and to participate on a regular basis in the management of the group. There is no cap on the number of times a SC member can be re-elected. At the first meeting of the newly elected SC, a Chairperson is appointed. He/she must be an affiliate and will act, during the mandate, as the main point of contact between the Standing Group, the ECPR staff and the Executive Committee. During the first meeting of the newly elected SC, SC members will also jointly decide on a fair distribution of tasks and responsibilities between themselves in order to ensure an efficient coordination of Standing Group activities.
