ISPP – 35th Annual Conference in Chicago

From 3 – 10 July, I will be in Chicago to present my paper “Office, Policy or Popularity? Motivations for presidential action in parliamentary and semi- presidential systems” at the 35th Annual Scientific Conference of the International Society of Political Psychology (ISPP).
After a very stressful week, I am looking forward to meeting a few like-minded people who also enjoy spending their summer in conference centres talking about science rather than going on holiday (don’t worry, I plan to do some sightseeing as well).
