Belgium (VPW) and the Netherlands (NKWP) jointly organize their annual congress “Annual Political Science Workshops of the Low Countries”, also know as the Politicologenetmaal. The 22nd edition will take place on the 1st and 2nd of June 2023, in Leuven. More information about the conference can be found on the conference website. The call for Workshops is currently opened.
