  • 22nd to 26th of August 2022: ECPR General Conference in Innsbruck
    We are pleased to announce that the Department of Political Science will host the ECPR General Conference in 2022. Over 2,000 political scientists will meet for one week at the campus Universitaetsstrasse. It will be the first General Conference after 3 years that will again be held physically in presence. We are looking for up to 50 students to support us at the conference next year. If you are interested, we look forward to receiving an informal application to The current pandemic development and the chaotic vaccination strategy in Europe have already made a decision necessary to only hold the conference virtually - it is not possible to plan such a large event under these circumstances! We hope that this conference will be held physically in 2023 or 2024 at our university. We will inform you accordingly.
