16th Annual Doctoral Conference 2021

16th CEU Annual Doctoral Conference via zoom 7-9 april 2021
Wednesday, April 7, 2021, 9:30 am – Friday, April 9, 2021, 5:00 pm


The conference provides a professional, stimulating, and international environment for PhD students and early career researchers in political science to discuss their works in progress, establish informal networks, and initiate future collaborative research. We aim to assemble submissions that reflect the plurality of research projects and approaches in the field of political science. Enriching this scholarship at CEU are our (sub)field specialisations in, and cross-pollination of ideas from, comparative politics, international relations, political economy, political theory, and public policy.

During the three days of the conference there will be 4 keynote speeches:

-Crisis Communication & Crisis Management during COVID-19: A Case Study, by Ruth Wodak (Emeritus Distinguished Professor of Discourse Studies, University of Lancaster, United Kingdom and Professor of Applied Linguistics, University of Vienna, Austria)

-Continuities in State-Building, Inequality & Violent Unrest, by Alexander de Juan (Professor of Comparative Politics, University of Osnabrück, Germany)

-Why Decoloniality Matters: Decolonial Approaches to World Politics, by Meera Sabaratnam (Senior Lecturer in International Relations, SOAS University of London, United Kingdom)
