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 networks
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
Once papers have been selected, they will then need to be submitted to the ECPR via their electronic platform. Authors must be registered in the ECPR electronic platform with the email address that they include in the paper proposals.
All the best
Keiichi, Marlene, and Ulrike
