Are elections enough to call a country democratic? Why do populist parties gain support in some countries and not others? What does state sovereignty mean in times of globalization? How do authoritarian leaders sustain their power?
The main focus of this course is on a variety of formal institutions, through which public policies and ideologies are realized. The fundamental assumption is that these institutions are not neutral – the actual outcome of politics is affected by the design of the electoral system, the organisation of the legislature or the constitutional status etc. The basics of the comparative method, introduced during this course, gives necessary tools for a systematic study of political institutions in the world.
