Call for Panels

On Thursday 7 and Friday 8 November 2019, the Netherlands Institute of Government (NIG) will hold its Annual Work Conference in Amsterdam.

The conference will be organised in collaboration with VU University, Faculty of Social Sciences. 

A VB-NIG preconference is scheduled on Thursday 7 November from 09:30 to 12:00 hours.

We are delighted to welcome you in Amsterdam.

PANEL proposals have to meet the following requirements:

  • A description of the proposed theme for the panel (max. 800 words, in English);
  • The type of papers (and topics) you would expect to be submitted for your panel;
  • A tentative list of senior members who will be invited for submitting a paper. NIG wants to stimulate the participation of its senior members (either as paper presenter or as discussant) and the participation of seniors is therefore an important criteria for the acceptance of proposals;
  • There should be at least two organisers (one of them preferably being a senior member) from two different institutions for a panel; the proposal should mention your names, affiliation and address information. If there are more than three organisers, please mention them in the proposal.

PANEL proposals will have to attract at least four papers to be able to have a session of their own. NIG will advertise your proposal, but you may also want to invite authors. Please consult the NIG office before inviting non-NIG members.

Please submit your proposal by 1 June 2019.
