ECPR Standing Group on Law & Politics
The ECPR Executive Committee has 2009 approved the  ECPR Standing Group on Law & Politics. Sylvain Brouard (Sciences-Po, Bordeaux) and Christoph Hönnige (University of Hanover) are the  convenors of the standing group. The aim of the group is to gather researchers interested in the topic of law and politics. You can find a link to the website here.
