WEP 50th Anniversary

To mark its 50th anniversary, West European Politics will publish a special double issue in October 2026 to debate the study of European politics, government, and public policy. Part of the special issue will be devoted to a critical assessment of how European politics, government, and public policy have been studied and offer a forum for critical debate about contemporary and future empirical, conceptual, theoretical, methodological, and normative challenges. The Editors are interested in paper proposals that challenge dominant perspectives and received wisdom; discuss blind spots and overlooked themes; and set out how the discipline should evolve.
