The Department has in the spring of 2016 been research evaluated. The evaluation panel consisted of:

  • Professor Colin Hay, Sciences Po, Paris, France (Chair)
  • Professor K. M. Fierke, University of St Andrews, UK
  • Professor Anne Lise Fimreite, University of Bergen, Norway
  • Professor Aletta Norval, University of Essex, UK
  • Professor Ingrid van Biezen, University of Leiden, Netherlands

The panel visited the Department on the 17th-18th of May 2016 and handed in their research report on the 30th of May 2016.

The report concluded that the Department is currently placed among the best European political science environments. The research evaluation finds, among other things:

  • That the research at the Department of Political Science is at the highest international level
  • That the Departments tradition for theoretical and methodological  pluralism is a special strength
  • That the Department marks itself by a broad societal impact
