EUROLOC PhD Summer School 2020

Utrecht, The Netherlands: 6th-12th July 2020

We are happy to announce that in collaboration between the Standing Group on Local Government and Politics (ECPR) and the European Urban Research Association (EURA) this year’s EUROLOC Summer School, will be organized by NIG – the Netherlands Institute of Governance (the Dutch-Flemish Graduate School for Public Administration and Political Science). 

The 2020 edition will be held in Utrecht under the topic The Study of Local Governance: Looking backwards and forwards Achievements and emerging trends in the study of local politics and administration (on the occasion of EUROLOC’s 25th anniversary).

The main theme of this year’s EUROLOC Summerschool is closely related to EUROLOC’s 25th anniversary celebrated in 2020. On this occasion it is appropriate to look 

  • backwards and consider: what were the main developments in different subfields in the study of local governance and democracy? 
  • forwards and map emerging trends in studying this subfield.

The Summer School invites applications from PhD-candidates who want to participate. Applicants should be preparing a dissertation in the domain of local governance / local democracy.

Deadline for applications: 15th April 2020 (24:00 hrs.)
