Our team in Comparative Politics follows a rather modern than traditional approach.
Our research activities lie at the intersection between international and comparative political economy, labour economics, applied quantitative data analysis and political methodology.
The teaching focusses on comparative methods to examine and compare structures, processes and decision making of different governmental systems. It combines research design/ quantitative methods and an analytical approach to explain correlations and to create hypotheses that are empirically provable.
