The Joint Sessions of Workshops have been hosted annually in March or April in an array of different European cities since 1973. They have been referred to as the 'jewel in the crown' of the ECPR and are recognized as one of the major highlights of the world's political science calendar. The workshops are designed to be a forum for substantive discussion on research in progress and collaboration among scholars. The topics of discussion are precisely defined, and only those scholars currently working in the workshop's field are invited to participate.
