About the ECPR Executive Committee

The EC is a 12-member board with responsibility for the organisation's long-term strategic development. ECPR is a charitable incorporated organisation (CIO), so EC members also act as trustees of the charity.

Members are elected for six-year terms. Elections occur every three years, when roughly half the Committee is replaced, so ECPR is looking to appoint six new members in this round of elections. 

EC members are respected professionals, eager to contribute ideas, time and energy to developing European political science. Each member is assigned responsibility for a portfolio area, such as Publications, Prizes, Standing Groups, Membership, or a specific ECPR event.

Aspiring members should be aware that this is not an honorary role. EC membership involves a significant amount of work, responsibility, and travel commitments.

Plenary meetings generally take place twice a year – in the spring at ECPR's headquarters in Colchester, and during the General Conference in September.

Subcommittee meetings take place throughout the year as workload demands, and ahead of each plenary EC meeting, normally via Skype.
