Lecture Series: MICROFOUNDATIONS OF POLITICS

Social Preferences and Political Behavior

For a long time, empirical research in political science has been dominated by studies on the macro-level. However, all social phenomena result from motivations and actions of individual agents. This calls for theoretical explanations referring to individual behavior and empirical tests on the micro-level. The lecture series highlights the importance of micro-level-based research in political science and features a broad variety of theoretical and empirical approaches.

The lecture series will be continued in the summer term 2017. In addition to the talks, some of our guest speakers will also offer short courses in methods of political science during their visits. Participation in the workshops requires prior registration with the  CCCP.
