Annual Doctoral Conferences

The Annual Doctoral Conference (ADC) is a graduate students' conference at CEU that has been organized every year since 2006.

The two to three days long conferences consist of several panel sessions, where students can present and discuss their research papers. Discussants in the panel sessions include renowned CEU professors and invited guest speakers. Panel sessions are usually followed by roundtable discussions. For 15 years, the ADC took place in CEU's Budapest campus. Since CEU's move to Austria, the ADC will take place in CEU's new campus in Vienna.

For students in the earlier stages of their career the conference provides an opportunity to train for a first contribution to a scientific conference. For students in later stages, the paper proposed for the conference can be seen as a ‘job market’ paper, i.e. a paper a student would select to present if she or he is invited to a job talk.

Below you can find information about the previous Annual Doctoral Conferences.

16TH ANNUAL DOCTORAL CONFERENCE

Central European University’s Doctoral School of Political Science, Public Policy, and International Relations had its first virtual conference

The theme this year is: Politics in the 21st Century. Thematically, the conference proposes an appreciation of (re)searching the ‘political’ in the face of 21st-century challenges. Resisting the scholarly urge to particularise these challenges now, we seek to provoke discussions about continuities and discontinuities in Politics as a discipline and politics as the very phenomena we study in varied contexts.

Zoom, 7–9 April 2021
