NOPSA Congress 2024

The Nordic Political Science Congress (NOPSA) will take place in Bergen from 25 to 28 June 2024.

NOPSA is a conference based on workshops (usually 25-30 in number). Each workshop is coordinated by two or three workshop leaders, who are responsible for the practical matters, such as setting up the workshop schedule and allocating discussants to each paper. Participants attend all sessions of their respective workshops.

The organizers have launched a call for papers for contributions to workshops.

It is possible to apply to a workshop by sending an email directly to the chairs of the workshop by 15 December containing: 

a) the paper title,
b) abstract (150-200 words) and,
c) the name(s) of the author(s), institutional affiliation and email address.
