Why Participate in the ECPR Activities?  

McMaster’s Political Science Department is part of the European Consortium for Political Research (ECPR) association. You can benefit from this institutional association and participate in the ECPR research activities and training events at a discount. ECPR membership also provides professional support for political scientists to help us progress through the profession and become leaders in their field in the following ways:


To attend the renowned ECPR Methods School (Winter- and Summer Schools) that provides high quality training in cutting edge research methods; critical to creating the solid foundations necessary for producing sound research.


To attend the ECPR events to share research and ideas such as in the ECPR’s Graduate Student Conference; the Joint Sessions of Workshops and smaller Research Sessions and the annual political science event in Europe.


The opportunity to publish in highly cited journals and books dedicated to the profession, in two book series and its own publishing imprint, the ECPR Press.


To access the ECPR’s largest network of political scientists in the world. You will be able to network with over 14,000 individuals from more than 300 institutions in some 44 countries worldwide by participating in events and publications formally and through joining (or convening) a Standing Group – formalized research networks that cover the full spectrum of sub-fields.
