SE Comparative Politics - Enhanced Level

Students acquire the ability to illustrate and explain the structure and function profiles of different democratic governmental systems. Moreover, they are able to individually analyse and evaluate complex phenomena from the field of comparative government based on relevant theoretical-conceptual approaches.



Gender and political (in-)equality in international comparison

Even today, political actors are mostly male. Only approximately one fourth of all Members of Parliament worldwide are female -  and there are even fewer women at the top of a political system worldwide. This class addresses the role of gender stereotypes for democratic decision-making and the ways gender shapes and is shaped by politics and public policy. Based on related work from within several subfields of Comparative Politics, we will discuss the role of women in different political institutions (executive and legislatures) as well as the electorate and how their prescence affect changes in political processes and outcomes.   

Presentations, discussions, group work, and application of methods in individual research projects.
