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 the varieties of authoritarianism, the global economic crisis, and field experiments. Upcoming issues will focus on sensitive political phenomena, graduate training in comparative politics, and the politics of space. The Newsletter is currently edited by Matt Golder and Sona N. Golder at The Pennsylvania State University.
