Politcologenetmaal 2020 POSTPONED:

Update: April 22, 2020

We regret to inform you that the Politicologenetmaal 2020 cannot take place as scheduled on June 11-12, 2020. The Dutch government has announced that all events will be banned until September 1, 2020 due to the new coronavirus.

  • We will postpone the conference to Saturday October 3, 2020.
  • In contrast to our tradition of being a ’24 hour’ conference, the conference will be held as a one-day conference.
  • Registration will open soon and will close on September 12, 2020.
  • It is still possible that also the October 3, 2020 date will not be feasible if government regulations are extended. In that case, the conference will be cancelled for 2020 and registered participants will receive a full refund.
  • Regarding accommodation and travel, we advise participants to book as flexibly as possible to ensure possible cancellation.
