Prof. Dr. Kai-Uwe Schnapp
In his research, Kai-Uwe Schnapp deals with the comparison of central institutions and organizations in Western democracies. In particular, he focuses on the role of parliaments and ministerial bureaucracies and their interaction. In addition, he has repeatedly worked on issues of electoral research, especially on state elections in Germany. Against the background of his many years as speaker of the section Empirical Methods of the German Political Science Associations (DVPW), he has published a number of volumes in the field of methods of political science. A recent edition project is a conference volume on the use of Big Data and methods of computational social science in political science. Currently, Kai-Uwe Schnapp is working in the DFG Research Unit 2104 on questions of the needs-based distribution of resources in modern democratic societies.
