Welcome from the new convenors

In the meeting of our standing group (for the minutes you can go to http://povb-ecpr.org/sites/default/files/Minutes-Montreal-28-8-2015.pdf) on August 28, during the ECPR General Conference held in Montreal, our nominations as the new convenors of the POVB standing group were approved. Consequently, in the coming three years we will try our best to maintain and enhance the position of the standing group as the forum for researchers in public opinion and voting behavior in the ECPR.
