About the course

The aim is to deepen the student's knowledge and understanding of current theoretical approaches in political science. The course will contribute both to a broad knowledge of theories in the field of political science and to individual specialization. Different theoretical approaches will be studied as well as their empirical application. Particular emphasis is placed on comparing approaches and on their commensurability with each other. The course encourages a critical and problematizing approach to theory.
