European Conference on Politics and Gender (ECPG)

8 July - 10 July

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.

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
