The ECPR’s Joint Sessions of Workshops bring together political scientists from across the world for five days of intensive, fruitful collaboration. Established in 1973, they are now recognised as one of the major highlights of the world’s political science calendar.

The GOVTRAN project, under the lead of Dr. Claire Dupont is organising one of the workshops on – Governing the EU’s Climate and Energy Transition in Turbulent Times (the same as the title of the project).

“The central aim of this workshop is to assess the evolution of EU climate and energy governance against a backdrop of increasing urgency to move to decarbonisation, stagnating European integration, and broader global trends towards political, social and economic turbulence. We will bring together papers that examine how the EU is governing the climate and energy transition within this context, why it governs in this way, and how this affects its role in the world and the shape of European integration into the future.”

The Joint Sessions will take place at Sciences Po Toulouse, in southern France 14-17 April 2020.
