2006 – Sponsored panel at the 20th World Congress of the International Political Science Association (IPSA), Fukuoka, Japan, with the support of the Greek Ministry of Foreign Affairs

The 20th World Congress of the IPSA was held in Fukuoka, Japan, in July 2006. The theme of the conference was “Is Democracy Working?” and featured a number of important contributions from leading scholars.

The Greek Politics Specialist Group of the UK’s Political Studies Association convened a special panel on Greek politics, which featured three papers:

“Civic Participation, Voting and Communication in Greek Democracy” by M. Zisouli, Dr. E. Apospori and Prof. G. Avlonitis (Athens University of Economics and Business)

“Political Competition: The Case of Candidates” by Prof. Th. Chadjipadelis (Aristotle University of Thessaloniki)

“Differences in Voting Behavior” by Dr. I. Andreadis (Aristotle University of Thessaloniki).

We would like to thank the Greek Ministry of Foreign Affairs for their kind and generous support, which was vital for our presence at the IPSA Congress in Japan.
