Joint Sessions of Workshops 2024

25 – 28 March

Leuphana University, Lüneburg

#ecprjs24

Registration now open! Register under 'My Events' by midnight UK time on Wednesday 14 February.

Our Joint Sessions of Workshops is a unique platform for scholars at all stages of their careers, from all parts of the world, and all sub-fields of political science, to come together for several days of intense discussion, feedback and collaboration.

About the event

Hosted in captivating Lüneburg by the multi-award-winning Leuphana University, our 2024 Joint Sessions promises to be the highlight of the political science calendar.  

Earning its reputation as the crowning jewel of ECPR, the event offers an exclusive opportunity for scholars to get feedback on their research and engage in insightful discussions centred around precisely defined topics. To ensure the quality of these discussions, participation is limited to scholars currently active in the respective Workshop field.

Hone research
Get inspired
Build networks

The Workshops serve as closed forums accommodating 15–20 Papers each, and lasting for four days. Each participant presents their Paper which is then thoroughly reviewed and discussed by the group. This unique and collaborative process has helped tens of thousands of scholars hone research, grow networks and get published over the last five decades. 

Participants may attend only one Workshop and must fully participate in all its sessions.

Stay tuned: Subscribe to our Events mailing list via My ECPR.
