European Politics Online Workshop
By Catherine De Vries, Bocconi University and Seth Kincaid Jolly, Syracuse University
In Summer 2020, we organized the European Politics Online Workshop (EuroPOW) to strengthen the European politics research community during the pandemic. This article discusses best practices, including a regular schedule on a simple website advertised via newsletter and listservs, a mix of talks and roundtables on salient topics, and public recordings for broader reach and for teaching purposes. In addition, we discuss how we approach diversity and inclusion, ranging from professional rank to topical to gender diversity, with a particular focus on highlighting junior scholars whose typical conference forums for feedback and early-career networking were decimated by COVID.
