Program description

The Master's programme Comparative and European Politics analyzes the characteristics and diversity of nation states within their global and European context.

As the processes of globalization and Europeanization deepen, politics and policy-making becomes less and less the exclusive domain of the national state. Indeed, politics increasingly takes place at different layers simultaneously. The so-called multi-level governance system of the European Union is a case in point. The processes of transnationalization profoundly affect patterns of political representation and the role of political parties and public policy-making. Social phenomena such as the pressures facing national welfare states and the subsequent controversial welfare reforms; the rise of alternative social movements or popular extremism; the erosion of established mass parties across Europe; and the waning power of trade unions in some countries: all need to be better understood as they are shaped by processes taking place outside and across national state structures. The Political Science Master's programme: specialization in Comparative and European Politics analyzes the characteristics and diversity of nation states within their global context, with a particular focus on those in a European context.
