Unlike Twins?! DVPW Section “Comparative Politics” Conference 2017

In March 2017, the bi-annual conference of the Section “Comparative Politics” of the German Political Science Assosciation (DVPW) will be hosted by the Institute of Political Science at Eberhard Karls University Tübingen. I am organizing this conference on “Unlike Twins?! Comparing Democracies and Autocracies. Insights, Developments and Challenges in Comparative Politics” together with my collegues Thomas Altmeppen, Mirjam Edel and Oliver Schlumberger.

The conference aims to be a platform for bringing together scholars in order to discuss recent developments and challenges related to the systematic comparison of democracy and autocracy. This includes a critical reappraisal of existing concepts, methods, and findings, as well as the discussion of new perspectives in comparative politics. The two main objectives thus are to capture the state of the art of the discipline and to assess the (old and new) challenges we face when we compare different political regimes, such as autocracy and democracy.
