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.
