Virtual Workshop on Authoritarian Regimes (VWAR)
VWAR is an online workshop series, closely modeled after the Conflict Consortium Virtual Workshop. It is a complementary venue where authoritarian regimes scholars can receive feedback on their work in progress. The idea of the workshop is that participants provide a working paper to the co-organizers, Charles Crabtree and Holger Kern, who then recruit 3 or 4 appropriate additional discussants. The workshops take place online, via Google Hangouts, and last for about 90 minutes. Participation in the workshop is open to all scholars who study authoritarian regimes.
Please email us your paper if you would like to participate and indicate which future workshop dates would work for you.
