Main areas of research:

Our focus in teaching and research aims at questions related to the functioning of democratic and other regimes, the cultural foundations of politics as well as the behavior of political and civil society actors and its effects on society. More specifically, we address the following research areas:

  • The radical right in West and East
  • Nationalism and populism
  • Religion and politics in liberal democracies
  • Capital cities and public architecture
  • Political consultancy

Our comparative approach in research and teaching deals with older democracies in Western Europe and beyond as well as younger democracies in Central and Eastern Europe.
