SCOPE 2017

The 4th edition will take place between 26 and 28 May 2017 and, under the coordination of the Centre for International Cooperation and Development Studies (IDC) of the FSPUB, it invites political scientists, as well as scholars from other related disciplinary traditions to reflect upon the many puzzles of DEMOCRACY IN DEVELOPMENT: COMPARATIVE PERSPECTIVES ON THE GOVERNANCE OF THE PUBLIC GOOD.

Initiated in 2014 by the members of the Faculty of Political Science at the University of Bucharest (FSPUB) to mark at that time the anniversary of 150 years since the establishment of this university, SCOPE is organized primarily through the FSPUB research centres and their partners.

At each edition the event gathers almost one hundred participants from Europe, US, Asia and Africa and it offers keynotes by top scholars in political science, political sociology and international relations from Europe and US. 

The working languages of the event are English and French, with English as primary language. 

The best papers are considered for publication within special journal issues or collective volumes with partner publishers.
