Project: Scientific event

Project participants


This well-known PhD Summer School is organized by the “Standing Group of Political Parties” of the European Consortium for Political Research (ECPR) and will bring together an international team of academics to teach a group of 10-15 PhD researchers working in the field of political parties and democracy.

The overall theme of this year's Summer School will focus on Political Parties in New Democracies. This enables us to analyse the role and the function of political parties in several regions of this world.

The main aims of the Summer School include:
-to provide PhD researchers with access to a wider range of core analytical perspectives in comparative politics than would normally be available at a single institution,
- to develop a multinational forum for PhD researchers and senior specialists to critically discuss their research projects,
- to help PhD researchers develop their dissertation projects / theses,
to encourage PhD researchers to produce high-level research with strong potential for future publication,
- to stimulate closer academic co-operation between PhD researchers in Political Scienceacross Europe and the world.

The Summer School is open for PhD researchers in comparative politics, political parties or democracy. The maximum number of participants is 15.
