ECPR General Conference 2022: GIGA Scientists Present Their Research

This year, GIGA researchers will once again present their research findings at the general conference of the European Consortium for Political Research (ECPR). The annual congress of the leading European association for Political Science serves to help researchers network as well as drives the further development of research in all subfields of the discipline.

  • From 22 to 26 August 2022, GIGA researchers will lead virtual panels and discussion groups on-site at the University of Innsbruck, Austria. In lectures, they will present their contributions to democracy research as well as work on state institutions, international relations, questions of social polarisation, the legitimacy of international organisations, and methodological developments to enable further discussion. All of our scholars’ contributions can be found below.

    The ECPR is the leading association for Political Science in Europe. The general conference brings together over 4,600 scholars from around the world annually to discuss current research topics and to advance the development of all Political Science subdisciplines.
