ECPR Press Editor Dario Castiglione completes his term 04/08/2015

After six years as an ECPR Press Series Editor, Dario Castiglione (University of Exeter) will step down after the General Conference in Montreal at the end of this month.

Since joining ECPR Press in 2009, Dario has been a driving force behind its success, and it is thanks in no small part to his untiring efforts that the Press is now established as a thriving, credible academic imprint. During his tenure, Dario has commissioned some important, enduring works including essay collections by renowned comparativist Peter Mair and by gender politics pioneer Joni Lovenduski – and the forthcoming volume Citizens in Europe by Ulrich Preuss and Claus Offe. Dario will be succeeded by current Associate Editor Alexandra Segerberg (University of Stockholm), who steps up to a full editorship.
