Dear colleagues,

The Political Networks ECPR Standing Group calls for paper abstracts for
the *European Conference on Social Networks (EUSN)* to be held between *7-10
September 2021 in Naples, Italy*.

We welcome your proposals to the *Political Networks *session.

The Session aims to provide a multidisciplinary space of convergence for
scholars that, while holding diverse research interests in the study of
politics, policy-making and political behavior share an analytic approach
to network processes in political life, coupled with strong attention to
the integration of theory and empirical data. Political networks are
conceived of in a broad sense - as defined around political actors, events
that are relevant to the political biographies of individuals as well as
around the use of digital communication technologies within political
dynamics, among others. Thus, ties can consist of exchanges of resources,
information, and symbols, as well as of collaborations and communications
that may occur both on- and offline. Substantive issues that researchers in
political networks have been dealing with are policy networks around
climate change on the local, national, and international levels, networks
of social movement organizations, comparisons of networks across different
institutional contexts, or political interactions within new social media,
among others.

The proposals (title, up to 500 words abstract, keywords, and author
details) have to be submitted *until May 31* via the EUSN website using an
EasyChair application where you need to have a registered account.

In case you have any questions do not hesitate to contact the session
organizers (see below).
