Dear Comparative Study of Electoral Systems (CSES) colleagues,

We want to inform you about some of the papers using CSES data that will be presented this week at the 4th General Conference of the European Consortium for Political Research (ECPR) in Pisa, Italy.

Section 17, "Voting Behaviour and Electoral Institutions in a Comparative Perspective" is organized and chaired by Oddbjorn Knutsen of the University of Oslo, and Gabor Toka of the University of Oxford, and contains at least eight papers that make use of CSES.

These presentations, or their associated papers, also make use of CSES:

If your ECPR presentation or paper makes use of CSES and is not listed here, please let us know and we will make sure it appears in the announcement on the CSES website, and in the CSES Bibliography.

Best wishes,
David Howell
Director of Studies
Comparative Study of Electoral Systems (CSES)
