The MIC conference will host a special session dedicated to political science issues. In line with the main conference theme, we invite established and young scholars to submit abstracts for the MIC Conference in Trieste, Italy. We welcome diverse theoretical and empirical contributions addressing the politics and policy of the green transition. Research on the local, regional, national and European level of government are welcome. Abstracts may address the following issues:

  • Public support for the green transition
  • Political debates framing the green transition (e.g. traditional media, social media, parliamentary debates, etc.) and green growth discourse
  • Public value/s of the green transition
  • Lobbying and interests representations in the green transition
  • Green, digital and politics of human rights
  • Democracy, citizen and community participation/deliberation (collaborative governance and co-creation, deliberative and participative democracy)
  • Democracy and digital technology (e-democracy)
  • Public value/s of the green transition
