AUS02 Comparative Politics

Session Chairs
Dr. Michael Di Francesco
Prof. Brian Head

This session welcomes papers on a range of comparative politics subjects. All theoretical and methodological approaches are welcome, including papers comparing political systems, countries, institutions, public policies and political actors. Broad topics of interest include, but are not limited to, institutions and institutional change, parties and electoral politics, political behaviour and social movements, media and public opinion, populism, public policies, political economy, and foreign policy. We especially encourage papers that engage with these topics from the perspective of the Congress Theme ‘Borders and Margins’.
