American political scientists are increasingly using experiments to analyze political behaviour. So far, European scholars have been slow to pick up this trend (Kittel & Morton 2012)[1], even though experimental methods (laboratory, survey and field) offer means to better analyze causal claims in the sub-areas of political psychology, political communication, electoral studies, and political economy. This organized panel seeks to bring experiments to European political science by inviting papers using such methods on the ongoing changes in and of Europe and beyond.
