Political Behavior Research Group

The Political Behavior Research Group meets every other week during the academic year to discuss ongoing and completed research related to political attitudes, political participation, political institutions, and public policymaking. The group combines traditional methods in political science with approaches from psychology, biology, sociology, behavioral economics, and policy analysis to examine the choices and strategies employed by political actors. The group membership consists primarily of faculty and graduate students in the Political Science Department. On this site, you will find current and past speaker schedules, along with a list of current and former PBRG participants.


Please contact faculty coordinators Dr. Ursula Kreitmair or Dr. Geoff Lorenz if you would like to be added to the PBRG listserv, or with any comments or questions about the group.
