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 race and ethnic politics, women/gender in comparative politics, data access and research transparency, populism, the politics of space, and sensitive data. The Spring 2018 issue will focus on the Comparative Politics of Policing. The Newsletter is currently edited by Matt Golder and Sona N. Golder at The Pennsylvania State University.
