Call for Papers: SGEU Pre-Conference ECR Workshop on Representation and Candidacy in the 2024 European Parliament Elections

Call for papers – ECPR SGEU Pre-Conference Workshop on Representation and Candidacy in the 2024 European Parliament Elections

Convened by William Daniel (University of Nottingham) and Andrea Aldrich (Yale University)

Tuesday 18 June 2024 – Lisbon, Portugal

The 2024 European Parliament elections will provide a key moment for direct citizen input into the EU’s democratic representation, as well as form the political balance that will need to be navigated in a key EU policymaking institution for the next half-decade. What does the ‘face’ of the institution tell us about the nature of representation in the European Union? How does representation play into the selection and election of MEPs? How are diverse gender, sexual, religious, ethnic, and social minorities represented in the European elections? Does this representation vary on a geographic or ideological basis? How have the dynamics of European representation changed over time? How are they covered in the media or engaged with by candidates as part of their campaigning? 

Workshop details

The conveners invite paper proposals from junior scholars and Early Career Researchers (i.e., advanced PhD students, postdoctoral researchers, and untenured lecturers/assistant professors) to submit work related to the topic for a one-day, pre-conference workshop. Workshop participants must be available to attend the full-day workshop on 18 June 2024. 

Papers may be either scheduled for presentation at the main SGEU conference or may be separate projects.

The format will offer a focused workshop for participants to present and receive feedback on their work from invited senior scholars in the field, similar to a condensed version of the ECPR Joint Sessions. A potential aim of the pre-conference workshop is to assemble a special journal issue on the workshop topic for publication in a leading European studies journal. 

Funding available

Selected workshop participants will be provided with funding to offset the costs of travel to Lisbon, as well as lodging for the night prior to the workshop. Complete information on funding availability will be confirmed with selected participants. 

Submission details

In order to be considered, please send a paper proposal, including title and an abstract of no more than 300 words to William Daniel (william.daniel@nottingham.ac.uk) by Monday, 19 February 2024. Selected participants will be notified by Monday, 26 February.
