Swepsa is the English acronym for Statsvetenskapliga Förbundetm the Swedish Political Science Association, which this year held its annual conference in Gothenburg Thursday and Friday. As it was the 40th jubilee of the Swepsa, it was slightly bigger than usual.
I did not present a paper myself but participated in 1,25 workshops including two oppositions (performed as replacement commentator on a paper in another workshop than “my own”). Nice meeting old colleagues and some newer acquaintances.
The conference had two panels, one on the 2010 election which – truth be told – was a bit disappointing, if only because many of the polsci points has already been made in the 2010 ValU and on Henrik Oscarsson’s and Jesper Strömbäck’s blogs. Marie Demker has posted her introduction to the second panel – the state of Swedish political science. I may get back to both issues later.
