ECPR Joint Sessions of Workshops

“The Intricacies of Accountability: Horizontal, Vertical and Diagonal Mechanisms to Combat Corruption”

Recognised as one of the major highlights of the world’s political science calendar, the Joint Sessions of Workshops have been held in a different European city, at an ECPR Full-Member university, each spring since 1973.

In 2015, the Joint Sessions will take place for the first time in Poland, at the University of Warsaw. 

Workshops are closed gatherings of 15-20 participants, which last for about five days. Topics of discussion are precisely defined, and only scholars currently working in the Workshop’s field, and with a Paper or research document for discussion, are invited to participate. Participants may attend only one Workshop, and must stay for the duration of the event.

This format, unique to the ECPR, means that the Joint Sessions have become a leading forum for substantive discussion and collaboration between political science scholars from across the world, and at all stages of their career.
