University of Zurich
Christopher J. Anderson

The steering group will send the endorsement to ECPR soon, but we would like to know how many of you would like to participate in one of the workshops. If it is very likely that you will apply, please send an email to: Oddbjørn Knutsen ( before Friday 19 February where you indicate your name and the title of the workshop where you would like to participate. We will then report to ECPR in our endorsement that there is (possibly) a considerable interest in participation in the workshops. We know that this is an important criterion for ECPR when they choose among the applications.

Note bene: This is NOT an application for participating in the workshop, and you should NOT - at this stage - send an email to the workshop directors.

1. Experienced Researcher Position at TNS Opinion
