Call for Papers: Research Workshop "Vested Interests and Democracy" / University of Zurich

This workshop aims at bringing together researchers from various disciplines (including, but not limited to, political science and political theory, law, philosophy, history, and sociology) in academic discussions about the topic of the workshop. The aim of the workshop is for early career researchers (including PhD candidates and postdoctoral researchers) to present their working papers or project proposals and to gain feedback from all participants as well as from senior scholars. Last but not least, we are delighted to announce that the workshop will also include a public keynote lecture by Prof. Emanuela Ceva (University of Geneva).

  • Researchers interested in participating as presenters can apply by sending an abstract of up to 500 words and a short CV to by Friday, September 10.
  • Researchers interested in attending the workshop without presenting can apply by sending an email to by Friday, October 1.
