EJPG provides a space for dialogue across the broad spectrum of politics and gender research.

EJPG aim to publish original research that spans the politics and gender field and is firmly embedded in global politics and gender scholarship. EJPG welcomes diversity and plurality in regional foci, analytical perspectives and methodologies.

EJPG is keen to receive work that explores, but is not limited to, the following areas (in alphabetical order): citizenship; conflict and peace; development; elections; governance; international relations; LGBTQI politics; advanced methods and techniques; multilevel politics and the European Union; political economy; political representation; political theory; public policy; representation; security; sexuality. These broad areas are often expected to ‘speak for themselves’. Within EJPG we provide space to develop new and ways to analyse politics from a gendered perspective.
