On the 8th of September 2017, three members of our project have participated in the panel „Borders, Sovereignty and Self-Determination in Contemporary Europe“ at the ECPR General Conference at the Universitetet i Oslo. Klaus-Jürgen Nagel has presented his paper „Democracy and Borders: Secessionism in European plurinational states. The Catalan case.“ Nicolas Levrat presented „The Right to National Self-determination within the EU: a Legal Investigation”, while Adam Holesch was talking about „Bargaining for Self-Determination: The Secession Game in the EU”. This panel has been chaired by Yannis Karagiannis, who is an Associate Professor at IBEI.
The General Conference is the platform for lively discussion, exchange of ideas and the best thinking in the discipline, and is Europe’s biggest gathering of political scientists. Attracting scholars throughout the world, and at all stages of their career, the conference covers the full range of political science. The Academic Programme will consist of lectures, Roundtables and themed Sections and Panels on topical subjects. Each Panel will include 4 – 5 Papers. The Programme will be very broad with Sections covering all the main areas of political science, political theory and international relations.
