We focus on European studies and international relations with a special emphasis on Europe. Thus, we look at a variety of different political science issues from a European perspective, taking particular account of the multi-level structure of the political system of the European Union. The chair also has a research focus on politics - the actors and processes. Our research approach is always empirical-analytical, our analyses are primarily quantitative in nature. Here you will find examples of selected topics in which we are particularly interested:

  • The political system of the European Union
  • European elections
  • Parties and party systems in Europe
  • Population attitudes in Europe
  • Voting behaviour in Europe
  • Gender research
