ECPR 8th Conference of the Standing Group on Parliaments 6 – 8 July 2023, University of Vienna


Our Standing Group on Parliaments is thrilled to announce that its 8th Conference is heading to the artistic city of Vienna in July 2023.

Presented by our Standing Group on Parliaments, the conference is a focused and inspiring gathering for scholars from across all borders and methodological backgrounds interested in the study of legislatures.

The event connects senior and junior researchers away from the hectic bustle of large-scale conferences, offering ample opportunity for in-depth discussions and fruitful networking.

To help you catch up with old friends and meet new Standing Group members, the academic programme will be complemented by exciting social activities, including a visit to the Austrian parliament and a conference dinner. 

Our Host

The conference is proudly hosted by the Department of Government at the University of Vienna.

The Department covers a wide range of political science topics in Austrian and Comparative Politics. Research and teaching mainly focus on political competition and elections, governments and coalitions, political protest and politics of remembrance.
