Dear colleagues and friends,

we are calling for paper proposal abstracts for the Political Networks
section at the *14th ECPR General Conference*
< > to be hosted on *26-28
August 2020* at the *University of Innsbruck, Austria*.

We welcome contributions to the following panel:

*Complexity and multiplexity – exploring subnational climate policy

The goal of this panel is to explore both theoretically and empirically the
role subnational actors for climate mitigation and adaptation policies.
Given the complex and polycentric nature of the climate governance
structure, the main aim of this panel is to broaden our understanding of
the interaction of national, subnational, and local actors to formulate and
implement climate policies at the various levels. Social network analysis
(SNA) provides a valuable toolbox to explore such multiplex relationships
between different actor types at different levels, but traditional data
collection techniques such as organizational surveys are also challenged by
this complexity. This panel calls for substantive, theoretical, and
methodological papers that apply SNA to subnational climate policy. In
particular, we are open to contributions that explore political
interactions at more than one level.

Please submit paper proposals by *January, 31th 2020* including the
following info:

- papers title and abstracts (no more than 500 words)

- institutional affiliation

- contact email address

*Organizers:* Marlene Kammerer, University of Bern (
