Call: EUSN 2021, political networks session

Monday, May 31, 2021

Event Details

The Political Networks ECPR Standing Group calls for paper abstracts for the European Conference on Social Networks (EUSN) to be held between 7-10 September 2021 in Naples, Italy. 

We welcome your proposals to the Political Networks session.

The Session aims to provide a multidisciplinary space of convergence for scholars that, while holding diverse research interests in the study of politics, policy-making and political behavior share an analytic approach to network processes in political life, coupled with strong attention to the integration of theory and empirical data. Political networks are conceived of in a broad sense - as defined around political actors, events that are relevant to the political biographies of individuals as well as around the use of digital communication technologies within political dynamics, among others. Thus, ties can consist of exchanges of resources, information, and symbols, as well as of collaborations and communications that may occur both on- and offline. Substantive issues that researchers in political networks have been dealing with are policy networks around climate change on the local, national, and international levels, networks of social movement organizations, comparisons of networks across different institutional contexts, or political interactions within new social media, among others.

The proposals (title, up to 500 words abstract, keywords, and author details) have to be submitted until May 31via the EUSN website using an EasyChair application where you need to have a registered account.
