Solop Attends World Congress of Political Science in Santiago, Chile

World Congress 2009 Dr. Fred Solop just returned from a trip to Santiago, Chile where he represented the Department of Politics & International Affairs at the World Congress of Political Science.

The theme of this year's World Congress was "Global Discontent: Dilemmas of Changes." The Congress took place from July 12-16, 2009. The World Congress takes place every three years and is sponsored by the International Political Science Association. The next World Congress is scheduled to be held in Madrid, Spain.

At the Congress, Solop presented a paper titled "The Keys to the White House: Electronic Democracy and the Race for the Presidency of the United States." This paper was part of a series of four panels exploring the implications of moving governmental processes to the Internet for nations across the globe. Other papers focused on electronic democracy in Russia, Croatia, Argentina, Brazil, and Spain.
