ECPR Standing Group in Political Parties

ECPR Standing Group on Political Parties

Welcome to the new website for the European Consortium for Political Research Standing Group on Political Parties.

The Standing Group on Political Parties seeks to facilitate communication and co-ordination among political scientists studying this centrally important democratic institution. To this end, it has been:

  1. developing for dissemination via its web site a register of current researchers to inform the wider community of work in progress;
  2. working on adding to its web site links to web-based sources likely to be of interest to its members;
  3. bringing people with related interests together on a regular but informal basis, and so to serve as a catalyst for the origination of joint research proposals;
  4. providing a forum in which a programme of workshop proposals can be developed and co-ordinated through broad-based discussion, rather than relying exclusively on individual initiative. To this end, all colleagues planning to propose a workshop are invited to make their intention known to the Convenor and via our list server;
  5. supporting an annual multinational PhD Summer School on European Political Parties.
