European Consortium for Political Research (ECPR)

The European Consortium for Political Research is a prestigious European association established in 1970. It currently has 350 institutional members from over 50 countries. ECPR members – students, including doctoral students, and academic workers – cooperate as part of research projects implemented within the community. ECPR supports and initiates international cooperation through various initiatives, including conferences, training, courses, methodological schools, prestigious publications, high-scoring journals and awards granted to outstanding researchers within the community. In 2016, the University of Silesia joined the international ECPR community. This allowed our Faculty to obtain a number of benefits, including:

  • open access to high-scoring journals: European Political Science Review (100 points) and European Political Science (online) (40 points);
  • the possibility of actively participating in numerous events organised by the ECPR community, including general conferences, joint sessions, and methodological schools;
  • a 30% discount on books in collaboration with Oxford University Press;
  • the possibility of actively operating in specialised thematic Standing Groups;
  • the possibility of participating in panels initiated by the ECPR during international conferences (APSA, IPSA, etc.).

The official representative of the community of the University of Silesia in Katowice in the ECPR is University of Silesia Professor Agnieszka Turska-Kawa, PhD (agnieszka.turska-kawa@us.edu.pl), who provides all information about the membership.

  • go to the ECPR page
