There were five CSES Module 5 Subcommittees in all: Content, Core and Demographics, Political Knowledge, Macro and District Data, and New Technology and Data Collection. The Political Knowledge Subcommittee is in the process of preparing an entry for the CSES Blog to elaborate on their recommendations. If you have not yet visited or subscribed to the CSES Blog you may find it at:

Second, there is a special CSES panel being organized by David Sulmont, our collaborator from Peru, at the Latin American Political Science Association Congress in Montevideo, Uruguay in July 2017. The call for papers, in both English and Spanish, can be found at the bottom of this email. Please feel free to redistribute this call to interested colleagues.

Thank you for your support of the CSES project!

Voting Behavior in Latin America: Evidence from the Comparative Study of Electoral Systems – CSES
Organized by: David Sulmont, Social Science Department, Pontificia Universidad Católica del Perú. CSES collaborator from Peru.

One of the aims of this panel is to show the potential of CSES data to analyze elections and voting behavior in Latin America from a comparative perspective. Papers must use CSES data and present a topic either in a single Latin American country, compare different countries inside the region, or compare Latin American countries with countries from other regions. CSES data is freely available at:

Abstracts must be sent to: [email protected]

Deadline: December 31, 2016.
