Professor Debra Javeline, currently a Robert Wood Johnson Health Policy
Scholar at CBRSS, invites all Statistical Methods Workshop participants to 
attend her practice job talk at 10 a.m., Tuesday, Nov. 18, at CBRSS.  

Her talk is titled, "Judicial Pioneers: Litigants in the Moscow Theater
Hostage Case."  The research question is what makes citizens decide to
challenge governments in courts for the first time (i.e. in
postauthoritarian regimes where there is no precedent for government
accountability through judicial processes).  Her evidence is from a new
survey she conducted of former hostages and next-of-kin of deceased
hostages.

Feel free to email Professor Javeline (javeline@latte.harvard.edu) with any
questions.

The usual lunchtime Statistical Methods Workshop (this week featuring 
Elizabeth Stuart, on matching methods and causal inference) will take place, 
as usual, this Wed at noon.  
An email reminder about Liz's talk will go out later today.
