A key mission of the ECPR is supporting the development of the discipline. To achieve this, we undertake a number of regular and ad hoc studies and projects looking at the challenges facing scholars studying political science across the world. We look at how the discipline works now, and how things could be improved in order to build a more inclusive and diverse community, with the object of supporting and nurturing both research and careers.
Implementing a discussion on protecting the academic freedom of scholars within our community.
Identifying and responding to areas of underrepresentation across our activities and the wider community.
Collecting important insights into the discipline and academic life on a broad geographical scale.
Ensuring that everyone can always work within a safe and respectful environment.
Advancing towards gender-equal composition across our sub-organisations, activities and events.
Monitoring participation and representation of women across our activities, operations and leadership.
Gathering valuable insights and feedback from across our global membership to drive improvement.
