Contradictions – Whither the Political, Economic and Social Integration of Europe?

Sciences Po, Paris, 13-15 June 2018


The European Consortium for Political Research (ECPR) is an independent scholarly association, established in 1970. Its 350 institutional members across around 50 countries represent the leading universities, students and senior academics engaged in the research and teaching of political science worldwide.

The ECPR supports and encourages the training, research and cross national co-operation of political scientists in a number of ways: a programme of world renowned conferences and events and a cutting edge Methods School, all with funding opportunities for members; a prestigious publishing portfolio which includes book series and three leading journals; its own publishing imprint, ECPR Press; and a range of high profile prizes celebrating academic achievement throughout the discipline.

The Standing Group on the European Union (SGEU) is broad based standing group affiliated to the European Consortium for Political Research.

ECPR’s Standing Group on the European Union (SGEU) promotes co-ordination and collaboration among political scientists interested in the blooming area of research on the EU. The Standing Group, one of the most populous in the ECPR, enjoys wide recognition.
Primarily a group of political scientists, the SGEU also fosters collaboration across social science disciplines, including anthropology, economics, law, sociology, and social psychology, with a substantive focus on the EU.
SGEU’s main activities cover:

  • a biennial pan-European conference;
  • summer schools;
  • organising and sponsoring Workshops, Panels and Sessions at ECPR events, and any major political science conference;
  • maintenance of a mailing list, a news service and a website.
