Dear CSES colleagues,

We want to draw your attention to an upcoming conference using CSES data:

CITIZENS, CONTEXT, AND CHOICE:
How Institutional Structures Shape Citizen Behavior

June 19-20, 2009
Cornell University

Based on cross-national analyses of the Comparative Study of Electoral Systems (CSES) data, this workshop brings together scholars of voter behavior to examine how the institutional context represented in the electoral system, party system, and constitutional structures shape citizen electoral behavior in contemporary democracies. The conference is organized by Christopher J. Anderson (Cornell University) and Russell J. Dalton (UC Irvine), and hosted and funded by the Cornell Institute for European Studies with support from the Mario Einaudi Center for International Studies at Cornell University and the Center for the Study of Democracy at the University of California, Irvine.

More information, and a list of papers, can be found at the conference website at this location:

Best wishes,

Director of Studies, Comparative Study of Electoral Systems (CSES)
