Welcome to the website of the Newsletter for the American Political Science Association's (APSA) Comparative Politics Section. The Newsletter publishes symposia on various substantive and methodological issues, highlights new data sets of broad appeal, and generally informs the community about field-specific developments. Recent symposia have looked at sensitive political phenomena, graduate training in comparative politics, the politics of space, populism in comparative perspective, and women/gender and comparative politics. The Spring 2018 issue will focus on Policing and Domestic Security Forces in Comparative Perpsective. The Newsletter is currently edited by Matt Golder and Sona N. Golder at The Pennsylvania State University.
