We welcome Hana Kubátová to the ECPR Executive Committee

09/09/2019

Hana KubatovaFollowing the sudden passing of Oddbjørn Knutsen only 15 months after his election to the Executive Committee of the ECPR, the EC has decided to co-opt Hana Kubátová, Charles University in Prague, to serve as a member of the EC until April 2021.

Hana was the leading local organiser of the ECPR General Conference in Prague in 2016, and will become a member of our Events Subcommittee.

Hana has accepted the role and will start with immediate effect. In agreement with our Constitution, the ECPR’s Council will be asked to ratify her appointment during its next meeting at the General Conference in Innsbruck, 2020.

Speaking to ECPR on the occasion of her appointment, Hana told us: 

‘Any good research needs a community that is welcoming and engaged, one that inspires you, even challenges you to raise new questions and rethink your ideas… this is what ECPR means to me, and I am looking forward to contributing to the manifold events that make this association into what it is: a community.’
