UBC Reports | Vol. 49 | No. 10 | Oct. 2, 2003


Political science professor Ken Carty has been appointed director of Research and Education for the B.C. Citizens Assembly, which was created earlier this year by the B.C. government to evaluate electoral reform in the province. Carty brings to the position an extensive knowledge of Canadian and comparative western politics and experience as a member of the federal boundary commission.

The self-governing assembly, randomly chosen from across the province, will hold public hearings across B.C. to look at all possible models for electing MLAs. It has a mandate to recommend no more than one electoral system.

At UBC, Carty balances teaching with a research focus on the structure, organization and behaviour of political parties. He has published widely on the political recruitment, leadership and electoral activities of parties in Canada, Europe and Australia.
