Students can discuss and explain the key theories and concepts of governance and political leadership, including the empirical conditions and manifestations of various political systems. Furthermore, they can compare and evaluate various forms and problems of governance and political leadership in diverse contexts.

Understanding the executive leaders’ actions and decisions is at the heart of political leadership studies. This course draws up three objectives. Firstly, the lecture offers an overview of main theoretical dilemmas and directions of studying political leadership. Secondly, we shall examine the specific political institutional contexts and situations, where executive leadership can occur. Thirdly, we explore the structures and dynamics of executive leadership within different political systems of Europe and the United States.

Lecture, assessment is based on a single examination at the end of the course (written exam)
