Studies and Policies

A key mission of the ECPR is supporting the development of the discipline. To achieve this, we undertake a number of regular and ad hoc studies and projects looking at the challenges facing scholars studying political science across the world. We look at how the discipline works now, and how things could be improved in order to build a more inclusive and diverse community, with the object of supporting and nurturing both research and careers.
