ECPR-IPSA Survey: Take Part in Redefining Political Science

As the 70th anniversary of the International Political Science (IPSA) and the 50th anniversary of the European Consortium for Political Research (ECPR) approach, we are seeking to develop a new profile of political science across the world.

In recent years, many concerns have been raised about developments in the profession, from growing job insecurity, lack of diversity, and excessive administrative burdens to outright threats to academic freedoms. At the same time, it can also be argued that political science has also been flourishing, with immense public interest in our work, stronger methodological skills, more cosmopolitan networks, and high student demand.

Accordingly, to gather systematic evidence, and to learn about your views and experiences in your country, we are inviting you to participate in the ECPR-IPSA World of Political Science survey. Complete this 20-minute survey and help us better understand our profession and the challenges we face: https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/ecpr50

All responses are anonymous, and no identifiable personal data is collected in this survey. Data will be treated in the strictest confidence, under the terms of the UK Data Protection Act and in accordance with the ECPRs Privacy Policies. It will be used solely for the purposes of the ECPR and IPSA.

Queries should be sent to the Survey Administrator, ECPR’s Communications Manager Rebecca Gethen rgethen@ecpr.eu

Deadline: March 16, 2019
