About

The Standing Group serves as a network hub for researchers in the field of environmental politics and facilitates electronic and face-to-face dialogue among scholars working on environmental political topics, particularly in (but not limited to) European countries. The Standing Group promotes the study of environmental politics within the political science community, and supports environment-related Workshops and Panels at ECPR conferences.

Aims & Objectives

The Standing Group on Environmental Politics aims to:

  • Serve as a network hub for researchers in the field of environmental politics;
  • Facilitate electronic and face-to-face dialogue among scholars working on environmental political topics, particularly in (but not limited to) European countries;
  • Promote the study of environmental politics within the political science community; and
  • Support environment-related Workshops and Panels at ECPR conferences by helping to improve proposals submitted by scholars from ECPR member institutions.

Activities

To achieve these aims, the Standing Group:

  • Uses an email list to circulate information to and from our membership;
  • Convenes the ECPR Summer School on Environmental Politics and Policy, which is designed to bring PhD students together with leading researchers in the broader field of environmental politics and policy;
  • Consults with our members to develop new and effective ways of diffusing information and promoting collaborative research on environmental politics.
