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 was originally scheduled for 25-29 July 2020 in Lisbon, Portugal. Due to the Covid-19 emergency, it has been postponed to July 2021, in the same venue. RC28 will sponsor a full range of panels and roundtables. The preliminary programme will be released in due course.
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 co-sponsored 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.
