About

The ECPR Standing Group on Federalism and Regionalism aims to bring together established and young researchers from across Europe and beyond with interests in the fields of federalism, regionalism, decentralisation, and politics and policy in multilevel systems. The Standing Group helps to stimulate communication and research collaboration among its members. It has organised thematic workshops and panels at regular ECPR conferences and co-sponsored workshops and conferences. It aims to continue these activities but also to intensify academic cooperation, for example via the ECPR Research Sessions. The Standing Group has a link with Regional and Federal Studies, the leading European specialist journal in the field.

Aims & Objectives

The basic aim is to bring together colleagues who are researching the fields of federalism, regionalism, decentralisation, multi-level governance and other territorial issues. The Standing Group helps to stimulate communication and research collaboration among members. The Standing Group has organised thematic workshops at regular ECPR conferences, co-sponsored workshops and conferences, and organised PhD Summer Schools in the past few years. It aims to continue these activities but also to intensify academic cooperation, for example via the relaunched ECPR Research Sessions.
