2015 - The 1st Gothenburg-Barcelona workshop on experimental political science

For papers: See bottom of this page!


May 7-8, 2015


University of Gothenburg, Sweden

Scientific committee

Peter Esaiasson (University of Gothenburg), Jordi Muñoz (University of Barcelona), Wouter van der Brug (University of Amsterdam), Sara Hobolt (London School of Economics), Elisabeth Ivarsflaten (University of Bergen), and Rune Stubager (Aarhus University).


The workshop brings together researchers who use experimental methodologies to address political phenomena. Contributions comprise field, lab and survey experiments that tap into a wide range of topics. Both senior and junior scholars are encouraged to participate. It is our ambition to develop this into an annual arrangement that alternates between Barcelona and Gothenburg.

The workshop will accommodate 14 papers over the course of two days. A keynote lecture will be delivered by professor Neil Malhotra (Stanford University). For more information please see the programme:

Programme (updated May 6th): Workshop on experimental political science

We expect relatively short papers (no more than 8,000 words) and they should be submitted by May 1. Participants are encouraged to seek funding for travel from their home institutions. A limited number of travel grants will be available for junior participants from the conference organizers.

For questions regarding the workshop please contact jordi.munoz@ub.edu or peter.esaiasson@pol.gu.se.
