The Comparative Politics Workshop (CPW)

Welcome to the Comparative Politics Workshop (CPW) at the University of Chicago!

CPW provides an opportunity for graduate students, faculty members and outside speakers to present their work and receive feedback. The workshop faculty sponsors for the 2022-23 academic year are Andrew Eggers and Monika Nalepa. The workshop meets in person on Wednesdays from 3:00 PM to 4:20 PM. Copies of the paper will be distributed by email one week in advance.
