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 25th World Congress was held in Brisbane, QLD, Australia, from 21-25 July 2018. RC28 sponsored and co-sponsored nine panels covering a wide range of topics in the field. The 26th World Congress will take place in Lisbon, Portugal, from 25-30 July 2020.
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 will co-sponsor 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, to be held at the University of Sarajevo, Bosnia-Herzegovina, from 12-15 June 2019. A provisional programme is available on the conference website. The final programme will be available in early June.
