April 11th 2024
APCP section: Parties and Party Systems

The APCP section on Parties and Party Systems invites the submission of proposals for the Workshop Parties, Party System Change and the Evolution of Portuguese Democracy. We invite papers that deal with the empirical study of Portuguese political parties and the party system during the democratic period (1974-2024). The thematic and methodological approaches of the papers are deliberately broad, but priority will be given to papers that focus on the long-term transformation of Portuguese political parties and/or the party system and their impact on the evolution of Portuguese democracy. We also welcome comparative papers (which include Portugal) and encourage young scholars to apply.

The event is scheduled to take place on April 11, 2024 and is hosted by the Department of Political Studies at the Nova University of Lisbon.

Proposals of papers should include an abstract (maximum 200 words), the names, e-mail addresses and a short bio (maximum 150 words) of all proposed paper givers. Proposal submission will be evaluated by the steering committee of APCP section on Political Parties and Party System. Paper proposals should be sent to the following email: spsp.apcp@gmail.com.

Deadline for submissions: December 22nd, 2023

Proposals will be evaluated by January 12th, 2024
