The Centre d’Étude de la Vie Politique (CEVIPOL) of the Université libre de Bruxelles (ULB), and the Berlin-based Cluster of Excellence “Contestations of the Liberal Script (SCRIPTS)” are organizing an international conference entitled “Resisting the autocratic turn: Can (and should) autocratization be prevented, stopped, and resisted?”.
The conference unites scholars from diverse backgrounds to inquire into the question how and why political regimes should resist the current autocratization turn. We invite paper proposals, ranging from normative to positive political theory, from conceptual to empirical works, while at the same time being ecumenical when it comes to concrete empirical research methods. Based on the Brussels conference, a follow-up authors workshop is planned in Berlin for late 2023.
Abstracts (max. 300 words) should be submitted, along with contact information (name, institutional affiliation, department, e-mail address), to Luca Tomini (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Johannes Gerschewski (email@example.com) by May 1st, 2023. Submissions must be in an electronic form as PDF format or as a Microsoft Word document. Notifications of acceptance will be sent out by late May 2023.
