9th ECPR General Conference

In 2015, the 9th ECPR General Conference took place outside Europe for the first time. It was held at the University of Montreal in Canada. The organizers selected over 1,300 papers to take part in the conference, which were grouped into 362 panels and 61 sessions.

I presented my paper on ‘Factors of the Party System Fragmentation in the Russian Regions (2003-2013)' on the first day of the conference, at a session 'Parties and Elections in Multilevel Countries 1, Comparative Territorial Politics'.

I attended many panels during the conference and would like to particularly mention the panel on 'Recent Developments in (electronic) Voting Techniques and Consequences for Democratic Representation and Policy Making’. It included papers dedicated to links between new media and politics. I was especially interested in the paper ‘Electoral Justice and Legal Challenges’. This analysed the issues related to how various legislative acts can influence the quality of electoral processes. The panel took place as part of the session ‘The Hidden Challenges of Electoral Integrity’.

The whole event was extremely well-organized. Everything ran to time, there were a lot of volunteers ready to help, and plenty of opportunities for networking. The contents of the papers I was lucky enough to see were of very high quality.
