The Center for European and Eurasian Studies and the UCLA School of Law and the UCLA Brukle Center for International Relations invite the public to a colloquium by George Tsebelis, Professor of Political Science, UCLA.

George Tsebelis works in Comparative Politics, with a focus on Western European electoral institutions and the European Union. He is a specialist in game theoretic methods, which he teaches in both graduate and undergraduate courses at UCLA. His 1995 article on "Veto Players" won the APSA's Gregory Luebbert Award for the best article in Comparative Politics, and he has written widely on the institutional design of modern electoral democracies and the European Parliament. He is author of Nested Games: Rational Choice in Comparative Politics (California) and Bicameralism (Cambridge, with Jeannette Money). Professor Tsebelis has received fellowships from the Max Planck Institute, the Hoover Institution, the National Science Foundation, and the John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation.

The lecture is free and open to the public.
