The European Consortium for Political Research - ECPR

The European Consortium for Political Research (ECPR) is an independent scholarly association, established in 1970. Its 300 institutional members across around 50 countries represent the leading universities, students and senior academics engaged in the research and teaching of political science worldwide.

The ECPR supports and encourages the training, research and cross national co-operation of political scientists in a number of ways: a programme of world renowned conferences and events and a cutting edge Methods School, all with funding opportunities for members; a prestigious publishing portfolio which includes book series and three leading journals; its own publishing imprint, ECPR Press; and a range of high profile prizes celebrating academic achievement throughout the discipline, from the Jean Blondel PhD Prize to the Lifetime Achievement Award.

The ECPR caters for every step of a scholar’s career, from Master’s level training, to opportunities to develop, present and publish innovative research. We also cover the full breadth of the discipline, with over 40 Standing Groups covering every sub-field of political science, from Political Violence to Politics and the Arts.
