Willie Paterson at 80

Published on by

By Prof Charlie Jeffery, University of York Willie Paterson, a legendary figure in political science and European studies in the UK, turned 80 a little while back.

Obituary: Sir Leslie Fielding

Published on by

We regret to announce the death of Sir Leslie Fielding on 4 March 2021, who was Honorary President of UACES between 1990-96.  Leslie was a larger than life figure – extrovert, engaging and energetic.  There were at least three sides to his career – the public official, the academic, and involvement in the Church of England.

UACES Chair’s Message — March 2021

Published on by

Since I wrote my last Chair’s column, we have taken the decision to host the 51st UACES Annual Conference virtually due to the ongoing situation with the COVID pandemic. We held our first virtual conference last September and we look forward to seeing friends and colleagues again from the UACES community, albeit, sadly, again in a virtual environment. The call for papers remains open until the 1st of April so do consider submitting a paper or a panel if you have not already done so. This year, we are hoping, restrictions permitting, that we will be able to host a small number of local bubble events to give members the chance to meet up in person in various locations – watch this space. Here’s hoping that the 2022 Annual Conference will take place in Lille as scheduled.
