By 20th April: All participants must submit a one-page summary on a topic that they are developing for a pol comm. journal. The one-pager must provide details about goal, RQ, theory, methodology, scientific contribution, and it will be positioned against ongoing theoretical discussions and the international research forefront. We also need information about what journal is targeted and how. Active participation is expected, meaning that the participants have to read all the one-pagers and be prepared to give a response.
