Comparative Politics

The Working Group Comparative Politics is interested in comparative work on institutions, policies, parties, democratization, representation, and inequality (economic and political). It welcomes contributions, theoretical or empirical, that address relevant scholarly questions addressing one or several of the above-mentioned issues. We are pluralistic and welcome various approaches and methodologies - what unites the group is an interest in institutions (broadly understood) and how these institutions affect various outcomes. We welcome contributions from graduate students, faculty, and other members of the academic community.
