Public Engagement for Energy Infrastructure Task at the ECPR Conference

The European Consortium for Political Research (ECPR) will organise their General Conference on 4-8 September 2023 in Prague. Bringing together different perspectives of political research within the European context, registrations are open for interested actors. More information is available on the Conference website.

At the conference, the Public Engagement in Energy Infrastructure Task will present the paper “What drives and holds public participation in energy infrastructure developments?” Summarizing the drivers and barriers to public participation and acceptance, the article will display preliminary results of the research done by the Task. Our findings will be discussed alongside other academic works within the Panel “Achieving and sustaining public legitimacy and acceptance for accelerating the energy transition“.
