Since the ECPR’s foundation in the early 1970s, one of its key events has been its annual Research Sessions where a fixed number of cross-national groups of researchers meet over a few days to discuss the early stages of research projects. Over the years, this has led to the establishment of several long-term research projects and resulted in many publications. The next ECPR Research Session will be held on July 9th- 12th, 2013 at the University of Essex. Call for proposals is now open. The deadline for all proposals is 25 March 2013.
