Dear Members of Polcan,
The ECPR General Conference will be held outside of Europe for the first time ever. It will be held in Canada, in Montreal. The ECPR
is organized via Standing Groups who have submitted possible sections. Please be informed that the Standing Group on the European
Union (ECPR SGEU) has a number of slots available for panels at the upcoming ECPR conference to be held at the Université de
Montréal, Canada, 26 - 29 August 2015. The deadline for submitting panels and papers is 16 February. The submission is due to
ECPR but do indicate that you are interested in being part of the ECPR SGEU panels. Below my name is an excerpt of the recent
ECPR mailing reminding members of this upcoming deadline.
Our panels have been indicated as focusing on topics such as Canada-EU relations, Transatlantic relations and mutual learning;
on Policy-Making and inter-institutional relations in the EU and EU’s Normative Power – The influence of the EU outside its borders?
If these topics do not fit your interests but you feel that your topic would fit, please feel free to suggest another panel of your own
choice and indicate in your submission to ECPR your interest in being part of the ECPR SGEU panels.
The ECPR recently sent a mail-out with more details which I have pasted below.
We hope to see many Canadian colleagues at this first major European conference in Canada.
All the best,
University of Victoria
