 #ECPG2024
Upload your papers before 21 June.

Our Standing Group on Gender and Politics is pleased to announce that its next Conference is headed to Belgium, offering three days of rich academic and social exchange in the beautiful city of Ghent. The European Conference on Politics and Gender (ECPG) has become a must-attend biennial event that furthers the Standing Group's mission to foster debate about gender, sexuality and intersectionality in politics, academia and other areas of public life. 

About the conference

The flagship conference of our Standing Group on Gender and Politics offers a global platform for exchange around how understanding gender is key to understanding politics, and where diversity and plurality in analytical perspectives and methodologies are enhanced.

Organised biennially since 2009, the ECPG has established itself as a prestigious gathering that:

  • Helps advance the study of gender and sexuality in politics
  • Strengthens ties within the global community of scholars in the field, at all stages of their career
  • Engages with the research on race and intersectionality, sexuality, on men and the masculine and those who identify as non-binary, genderqueer or intersex

The Standing Group

The Standing Group on Gender and Politics(SGGP) forms a broad-based network on issues relating to the study of gender and sexuality in politics and world politics.

The Group actively encourages workshops, panels and research groups with an emphasis on gender and seeks to increase the profile of women in the main fields of political science.

By prioritising inclusivity, fostering dialogue and promoting collaboration, the Standing Group on Gender and Politics actively strives to create an academic community that embraces diverse perspectives and addresses the unique challenges faced by scholars from different regions and marginalised communities.
