EPSA statement on racism and discrimination

We have recently witnessed peaceful protests against societally entrenched racism and discrimination in many European countries. The European Political Science Association (EPSA) is committed to equality and equal opportunity within the political science community in Europe and beyond.

EPSA condemns racism and discrimination in our profession. We support an inclusive European academic community in which members feel supported, safe, heard and protected from acts of racism and discrimination. As with all EPSA events, the 2020 Virtual Meeting is governed by the association’s code of conduct avowing discrimination and harassment of any form.

At the upcoming virtual EPSA conference, we will organise a panel on Racism in the Democratic Process. This will be held on Thursday, June 18, 2020 at 19:00-20:00 London, UK time. We wish to invite all EPSA members and participants to join this event.
