The Annual Workshop of the Institute of Political and International Studies (POL-IR) at Eötvös Loránd University (ELTE) is being organized for the second time. It is a tradition that started in 2023 and is aimed at bringing together scholars linked to our Institute, from PhD student to professor emeritus.

This time, we have chosen “hierarchy” as the central motif of the workshop. It is an essential concept of the area that the newly founded Department of Global and Development Studies, one of the three departments of the Institute, works with. However, colleagues from other departments can also easily relate to it. We observe social, cultural, and gender hierarchies, as well as European and global political and economic hierarchies. We aim at launching an interdisciplinary dialogue that can point towards new research ideas, publications, or other academic activities.
