About the Conference

The ECPR Standing Group on Gender and Politics forms a broad-based network on issues relating to the study of gender and sexuality in politics and world politics. Over the past twenty years, the research conducted in this field has expanded significantly and the number of gender and politics scholars participating in the ECPR Joint Sessions and General Conferences has increased exponentially.

In 2007, the Standing Group on Gender and Politics decided to arrange the first ever conference dedicated to this exciting field of research, called the European Conference on Politics and Gender (ECPG). It was held in Belfast, 21-23 January 2009, and was an enormous success: more than 300 scholars converged for three days of panels, plenaries and socialising. The aim at that time was to turn the new conference into a bi-annual international conference on gender and politics. Its second edition was held in Budapest, 13-15 January 2011, and the number of participants was even larger. We are pleased to launch the 3rd European Conference on Politics and Gender to be held in Barcelona, 21-23 March 2013.

• The conference will be held in various seminar and lecture rooms at the Universitat Pompeu Fabra (UPF) campus.

• The conference will be hosted by the Department of Political and Social Sciences at UPF.
