Political Marketing Conference at the UCRS

Conference participants

On 13-14 August, 2015 Uppsala Centre for Russian and Eurasian Studies hosted a conference entitled ” Old and New: Tradition and Innovation Within the Political Marketing Discipline”. The conference was the fourth edition of Political Marketing Forum. Previous editions were held in the University of Illinois, US (2012), in Budapest, Hungary (2013) and Bucharest, Romania (2014). Complementary to the classic purpose of the Forum which is to join and bridge political marketing experiences from various societies and elections, different views and opinions, and discussions on possible new paths to take the theory and practice of political marketing were of great interest in the 2015 event. The 2015 Political Marketing Forum was again greatly honored to host Professor Bruce Newman, academic, practitioner and author, the editor of the Journal of Political Marketing, as the keynote speaker. For more information about the conference please visit conference website.
