The 5th Conference for Doctoral Students of Political Science

“The political realm from social science perspectives”

the 5th Conference for Doctoral Students of Political Science

Venue: Corvinus University of Budapest, Building C, 4-6 Közraktár street, 1093 Budapest

Date: 5-6 December 2019


The study of political phenomena has attracted scholars from different disciplines (such as comparative politics, political economy, political sociology, and political communication), who approach intertwined questions from distinct perspectives. The resulting discourses, however, rarely engage with each other, while a comprehensive understanding of politics requires the joint application of diverse theoretical and methodological approaches, as well as syntheses of their results. This year’s instalment of our graduate conference, organized for the fifth time, aims to promote joint discourse and reflection by providing a forum for doctoral candidates and (post)graduate students engaged in political research.

Languages of the conference: Hungarian and English

Academic partners: Corvinus University of Budapest Doctoral Schools, HAS CSS Institute for Political Science, Hungarian Political Science Association
