Launched in 2011, the Geneva Colloquium in Political Theory (GECOPOL) has rapidly established itself as one of the leading academic forums in Switzerland where students, doctoral candidates, post-docs and senior scholars working in the field of political theory and philosophy meet and discuss their work.

Every semester, six to eight political theorists have the opportunity to present their work in progress covering a broad range of topics and approaches in political theory and philosophy. Papers are circulated beforehand and participants are expected to read them in advance. Each session begins with a brief presentation by the author, for about 30 minutes, followed by a discussion. The working languages are English and/or French.

Here is a set of guidance notes on best practices we follow at our seminars: http://consc.net/guidelines/

As of 2020, the GECOPOL is proud to host the Geneva Graduate Conference in Political Philosophy (GECOPOL_graduate).
