MEDW conferences: Calls for papers

Two conferences will be co-organized within the framework of the Making Electoral Democracy work Project in Montreal in 2014. Interested scholars are invited to submit an abstract (see instructions below).

Voting Experiments

The first conference will be organized by André Blais (Université de Montréal – MEDW Project), Jean-François Laslier (Paris School of Economics – MEDW Project), and Karine Van Der Straeten (Toulouse School of Economics – MEDW Project). It will be held on March 28-29.

The organizers invite papers that use experiments to address the question of how the electoral context (e.g. the electoral system, or the degree of competitiveness of elections) influence the way citizens and parties act during elections. Papers addressing methodological issues of this type of experiments are also welcome. Abstracts should be submitted via this page before October 1 (see the call for papers for further details).

Citizens, Parties, and Electoral Contexts

The second conference will be organized by Prof. Elisabeth Gidengil (McGill University – MEDW Project) and Dr. Ferran Martinez i Coma (University of Sydney – Electoral Integrity Project). It will be held on July 18 (just before the ISPA general conference).

The organizers invite papers that address the question of how the electoral context (e.g. the electoral system, or the degree of competitiveness of elections) influence the way citizens and parties act during elections in a comparative perspective. Abstracts should be submitted via the Electoral Integrity Project website before September 1 (see the call for papers for further details).
