Making Sense of a Pluralist World:
Sixth Pan-European Conference on International Relations
University of Turin, Italy
12-15 September 2007
CALL FOR SECTION PROPOSALS
The ECPR Standing Group on International Relations will hold the 6th Pan-European Conference on International Relations in Turin from 12 to 15 September 2007. It will be organised around sections with specific themes, incorporating a minimum of three and a maximum of eight panels with three
papers and one discussant each. We encourage proposals of sections from the whole spectrum of International Relations, which demonstrate the vibrancy of research in our field, in Europe and beyond. Section proposals that engage with the opportunities and challenges brought about and faced by the pluralisation of world politics in theory and practice, the tensions between differentiation and homogenisation, and the relationships between co-existing worldviews (including, for instance, religions, economic paradigms and political
ideologies) are particularly welcome.
At this stage, we solicit section proposals by prospective section convenors. Section convenors organise the panels, select panel chairs, and take responsibility for the actual execution of their sectionís part of the conference programme. Each proposal should include the title of the proposed section; name(s), affiliations and contact details of the section convenor(s) (max. 2); a 300-word summary of the main aims of the section; an indicative list of panel titles and potential panel chairs.
Proposals should be sent as an e-mail attachment to firstname.lastname@example.org and must be received by 31 May 2006. Convenors will be notified and a call for paper proposals issued by 30 June 2006, with a deadline of 31 January 2007.
There will be a maximum of 25 sections.
