We are the leading scholarly society concerned with the research and teaching of political science in Europe, headquartered in the UK with a global membership.
Our groups and networks are pushing the boundaries of specialist sub-fields of political science, helping to nurture diversity and inclusivity across the discipline.
This unique event has helped tens of thousands of scholars over nearly five decades hone research, grow networks and secure publishing contracts.
An engaging platform for discussion, debate and thinking; Europe's largest annual gathering of political scientists from across the globe.
A comprehensive programme of cutting-edge qualitative and quantitative methodological training delivered by experts across two annual events.
Inspired by Harbour House, our HQ which provides a literal and metaphorical ‘home’ for the ECPR family, this lecture series seeks to open doors to some of the most pressing issues and challenges in the discipline.
Our Standing Groups organise a range of annual events, including summer schools, conferences and workshops, open to all.
Our highly regarded peer-reviewed journals, produced in partnership with the world's leading academic publishers, share the best scholarly thinking.
Through our imprint ECPR Press and via the OUP Comparative Politics book series, we publish research by, and for the political science community.
Sharp analyses of topical news from a political science perspective, research summaries and the latest expert thinking.
Digital content from across our activities and community:
lectures, seminars and discussions available on demand or to stream via podcast channels.
Our members are universities across the globe and the scholars who work and study within them; membership benefits both the individual and the institution.
We have a range of funding schemes to help progress individual careers and to support the wider development of the discipline.
From distinguished scholars to exceptional PhD students, our prizes recognise service and achievement across the profession.

The ECPR’s publishing arm, ECPR Press, publishes cutting-edge research across all fields of political science, international relations and political thought, without restriction in approach or regional focus. The Press is also open to interdisciplinary work with a predominant political dimension.
Since June 2017, the ECPR Press imprint has been published in partnership with Rowman & Littlefield International (RLI). Drawing on the rich experience of both organisations, the Press will continue to develop and expand on the editorial policy and reputation it has built since its creation in 2005.
Drawn from the political science community, our knowledgeable editors deal with all proposals swiftly, efficiently, and professionally and oversee all projects until they are handed on to RLI for production. Manuscripts are copyedited, typeset, proofed, indexed and printed using RLI’s highly skilled production team in the UK and the US. Authors are then able to harness the combined expertise and reach of the marketing teams at both ECPR and RLI to ensure their book reaches the widest possible audience.
