Danish and Comparative Politics – Behavior, Institutions, and Methods

The research group, Danish and Comparative Politics – Behavior, Institutions, and Methods, covers at least four important subfields within political science: comparative politics, political behavior, political economy, and European politics. Substantively, the members of the group study political parties, interest groups, political regimes, politics in non-democratic regimes, public opinion formation, electoral politics and many other topics of immediate and contemporary relevance to both academics and practitioners. The group covers and welcomes a broad array of methodological approaches to the study of politics, ranging from design-based causal inference to interviews and participant observation.

The members of the group contribute actively to developing the academic life at the Department of Political Science by doing world-leading research, which is regularly published in the discipline’s most prestigious journals.
