Our main event is the biennial IPSA World Congress, where we sponsor and co-sponsor panels and roundtables on all aspects of federalism and multilevel governance.

The 26th World Congress will take place in Lisbon, Portugal, from 25-29 July 2020. RC28 aims to sponsor a full range of panels, including panels co-sponsored by other IPSA research committees. The call for panels is open and will close on 10 July for open panels and 10 October for closed panels. The call for individual paper proposals will open on 7 August and close on 10 October.

RC28 members are eligible to apply for a travel grant to participate in the IPSA World Congress.

In addition to the World Congress, we sponsor and co-sponsor conferences, workshops, and other events that are relevant to the study of federalism and multilevel governance.

In 2019 we are co-sponsoring three main events:

A joint conference with fellow IPSA research committees Politics and Ethnicity (RC14), Democratization (RC13), Security, Conflict, and Democratization (RC44), and The Politics of Language (RC50) on Diversity and Democratic Governance: Legacies of the Past, Present Challenges, and Future Directions, held at the University of Sarajevo, Bosnia-Herzegovina, from 12-15 June 2019. The programme is available on the conference website.

A section on Federalism and Multilevel Governance at the 4th International Conference on Public Policy organised by the International Public Policy Association, from 26-28 June 2019.

A panel on Longitudinal Dynamics in Territorial Governance at the 13th ECPR General Conference in Wroclaw, Poland, from 4-7 September 2019.
