ECPR Graduate Student Conference 2016
The 6th ECPR Graduate Student Conference will take place on 10-13 July 2016 in Estonia, at the University of Tartu.
ECPR (European Consortium for Political Research) Graduate Student Conferences represent an excellent opportunity for graduate students to come together from all over Europe to share their work and experience by presenting papers or by simply observing.
Following the traditional format of Sections, organised around a common theme or major research question, the conference brings together young scholars from across the world for their first experience of an academic conference. Participants are encouraged to take on the full spectrum of roles, from Section and Panel Chairs, to Discussants or Paper givers. Alternatively, they can simply attend and observe.
This biennial conference gives graduate students and young scholars the opportunity to take part in a high-profile, international event designed specifically with their needs in mind. The key to any successful conference is teaming challenging academic content with a stimulating plenary timetable that facilitates effective networking. That's why the ECPR's Graduate Student Conference includes practical lectures, alongside lectures from high-profile academics, and social events that encourage participants to make vital contacts.
