6th Annual Formal Theory and Comparative Politics Conference

September 14-15, 2018
Yale University, New Haven, CT

Comparative politics is concerned with a vast array of phenomena, from the stability of political regimes to the dynamics of electoral competition. At the heart of these problems is a strategic interaction between different political actors, which be analyzed fruitfully using formal-theoretic tools.

This conference brings together scholars working at the intersection of formal theory and comparative politics, discussing the following topics: regime stability; protests; order, conflict, and violence; elections; and social interactions.

This event is coordinated by Alexandre Debs and Milan Svolik and student liaison Eli Rau of Yale University.
