Subject: IPSA 2018 World Congress Call for Proposals - Research Committee on Comparative Federalism and Multilevel Governance

Dear colleagues,


The call for panels and papers for next year’s International Political Science Association (IPSA) World Congress in Brisbane is now open and will close on 10 October.


On behalf of the IPSA Research Committee on Comparative Federalism and Multilevel Governance (https://comparative-federalism.org), I invite you to submit a proposal for either an individual paper or a complete panel.  Guidance on the submission process can be found here.


RC28 plans to sponsor a full range of panels, open to any topics of interest in the field of comparative federalism and multilevel governance. We especially welcome papers and panels that connect federalism, approached as either a dependent or an independent variable, to other major research agendas in political science such as concepts, methodology, local government, de/centralisation, legislatures, judiciaries, ethnicity and language, elections and parties, public opinion, public administration, public policy, and the quality of democracy. Panels addressing these topics may also be co-sponsored by other IPSA research committees. 


We look forward to receiving your proposal. Please feel free to contact us at ipsarc28@gmail.com if you have any questions or comments about the submission process. 


With best wishes,




Dr Paolo Dardanelli
