We particularly welcome paper and panel submissions that address the conference theme of Politics after the Digital Revolution.
Because of a change to the allocation formula, the M&C Section’s acceptance rate this year should be roughly equal to the average acceptance rate for all Sections (unlike last year when the acceptance rate was much lower than the average), but the actual number of panels allocated to the section this year (and in future years) depends very much on the number of submissions we receive this year. So please consider submitting your proposal(s) through Migration & Citizenship.
You may submit up to 2 papers or 2 organized panel proposals. The application deadline is December 15.
